Save the date for middle school orientations on Aug. 22

A Joint Message from Middle School Principals

Dear incoming sixth grade families,

We wanted to send you this ‘save the date’ email to remind you that grade 6 orientations are scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 22 later this summer. Please see list below for school-specific times for orientation.

Though our orientations may have different acronyms (CAT, CUBS, WEB), they are all designed to support students in their transition to middle school.  CAT stands for connections, acceptance, trust; CUBS stands for connections, understanding, belonging, support; and WEB stands for “where everybody belongs.”

FAIRHAVEN: Grade 6 orientation CUBS Day - 12 to 3:30 p.m. Aug. 22

KULSHAN: Grade 6 WEB student orientation - 8 a.m. to noon Aug. 22 (students only)

SHUKSAN: Grade 6 WEB student orientation - 8 a.m. to noon Aug. 22

WHATCOM: Grade 6 orientation CAT – 1 to 3 p.m. Aug. 22

We are excited to welcome you to our school. Thank you for marking this important Aug. 22 date on your family calendar.

In the meantime, have a wonderful summer!
