Grade 8 Transition Information

Grade 8 New Student Orientation

Step-Up Day 2023

All 7th grade students will travel to MRHS for Step Up Day on Thursday, June 8, 2023, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The goal is for students to familiarize themselves with the building during a typical school day. All MRMS homerooms will be grouped with high school student leaders for tours, activities, lunch, and informational presentations about everything our school has to offer.

All parents and guardians of current Grade 7 students are encouraged to attend a Parent Night from 6 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 8, in the cafeteria at MRHS. The agenda includes a presentation from counseling staff and school tours from current student leaders.

If you would like to set up a time to review individual questions or concerns about the transition to MRHS, please contact Caitlyn Hall, Grade 8 Counselor, at or 508-815-5867.
