We are Ready for Parkwood Middle School

Students took a field trip this week to Parkwood Middle School. We were met by sixth grade students who took us on a tour of the school and answered questions about middle school.

We learned about the dress code and how we will switch classes.  We met teachers and learned about some of the differences between middle school and elementary school. They showed us a video about all the exciting things we could participate in at Parkwood.

Students were excited about being about to participate in clubs and go on special trips.


We visited the band room and walked through some of the sixth grade classrooms to see where we would be learning.

Students also were able to find out about sports and when they could participate in them as well.

The tour guides even let us look in lockers! They showed us how to open a locker and what we could put in the lockers. Having lockers is going to be so exciting!

We are excited about this new adventure that we will be embarking on in August! Middle school here we come!!
