From 5th to 6th; The Journey Of A Lifetime

Exciting, weird, stressful, and fun are all words to describe middle school. Just like a roller coaster, there are always some twists, turns, and bumps on your path to the last day. But, with all the new sixth graders, it’s going to be an interesting year full of new memories and teachers too!



For many students, it was their first day of middle school a month ago.  And as most people know, middle school is very different from elementary school. Some things are better in middle school and some kids miss stuff from their elementary school.
