The 5th graders have been visiting 6th grade classrooms so that they can get a taste of life as a 6th-grader. Now, to conclude this experience, the school is offering a parent orientation event. 5th Grade Transition Night will be held this Friday, May 15 at 6:00 p.m. The event is for parents and students, and there will be an ice cream social! Then, don't miss the Mustang Magic Show afterwards with magician Jim Snack!
