We are very excited that your student will be attending middle school in Farmington this year and we look forward to meeting him or her on Orientation Day – Thursday, August 23rd, 2018.  As you may know, our school participates in the nationwide W.E.B. Program, an organization whose primary purpose is to help sixth graders feel more comfortable and to help them achieve success in their first year of middle school.

 The WEB sixth grade orientation and transition program is designed to both welcome and support sixth graders by assigning them an 8th grade WEB Leader as a mentor during this first year.  This WEB Leader is a responsible older student who was hand selected from a large pool of applicants and has met the qualifications of being a good role model and a positive leader on our campus.  Below is some important information about orientation:

1.       Bus slips will be mailed in the upcoming future directly to your residence. This will include your student’s personalized transportation information for August 23.  It will list the time and location of the bus pickup and drop off for this event.  If this information appears inaccurate once you receive it, please call the main office at 651-460-1500

2.       Should you wish to transport your student, this event is scheduled to take place from 8:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. 

3.       Your student is encouraged not to bring backpacks, purses or other like items as the day is quite active.

4.       Because the day is active, please make sure that your student wears comfortable clothing that does not restrict movement.

5.       Students will be served a traditional school lunch.  They will need to bring their PIN number and their meal accounts will be charged.  Students can bring bag lunches if they prefer.

This is a student-only function, so we encourage you to let your child attend on her or his own.  

Thank you for marking this very important date on your calendars.  We look forward to meeting your student on orientation day!
