Welcome to Halsted Middle School! 

5th and 6th Grade Orientation

August 1, 2014

 Dear Parents,

 We would like to invite you and your fifth and/or sixth grader to visit Halsted on Friday, August 19, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. This orientation will provide your child an opportunity to become familiar with her/his new school and possibly some of the fifth and sixth grade teachers. The students will be able to see where they will attend classes and be allowed to walk through the school just as they will on the opening day of school, September 4, 2014. 

Refreshments will be provided and any questions you may have will be answered at the end of the program in the cafeteria. This will be a great opportunity to see old friends as well as meet some new acquaintances!

The schedule for the evening is as follows:

6:00 - 6:30 Auditorium for Halsted Middle School overview

6:30 – 7:00   Tour of the building

7:00 – 7:30   Refreshments and questions in the cafeteria

If you cannot join us on the 19th, please do not hesitate to call me at the school with any questions and or concerns.

I am looking forward to seeing you and your child on August 19, 2014.
