5th Grade Transition Bulletin #7 – April 16, 2018

Dear 5th Grade Families,

I hope the information I have shared with you in the Transition Bulletins the past couple of months has been helpful and answered some questions that you had about Julian Middle School. There are two important events coming up in the next couple of weeks that I need to share with you.

  1. 5th Grade Student Visits

    Your 5th grader will have the opportunity to visit Julian Middle School on the morning of Tuesday, April 24 (Irving and Longfellow) or Thursday, April 26 (Beye and Mann). Students will spend approximately two hours with us on those days. They will hear our Jazz Ensemble and Jukebox Choir perform, meet the administration, learn about the daily schedule for middle school students, get information on extracurricular activities, tour the building, and have the opportunity to ask questions of current 6th graders.
  2. 5th Grade Parent Orientation-Thursday, April 26 from 6:00 pm-8:00 pm

    5th Grade Parent Orientation will be held at Julian on the evening of Thursday, April 26 from 6:00 pm-8:00 pm. You will have an opportunity to meet the administration and many other staff members. Our time together will focus on the middle school experience highlighting how the International Baccalaureate Program will impact your student’s education.

Please let me know if you have any questions about these upcoming events or the transition into middle school. Have a great week!


Dr. Todd T. Fitzgerald
Principal, Julian Middle School
