Transitions is a semester class offered to 6th graders. This class could be called “How to survive Middle School.” Students will be given an opportunity to learn new skills that will help them be successful both academically and in life. We cover topics such as building character, study skills, learning styles, setting goals, social intelligence, and growth mindset. Students will read and discuss inspiring stories, keep a word wall, and start a journal. Students also will take part in team-building activities, creating time capsules and vision boards! Study groups will be built into the weekly schedule and time to finish assignments for other classes will be provided.
