Important Dates and Information for Middle School Transition
Dear 5th Grade Parents,

Now is the time to start thinking about Middle School for your child. I have provided some answers to frequently asked questions below.

How do I know where my child will attend Middle School?

Your home address determines the middle school your child will attend. If you live in the Woodcrest boundary, our home middle school is Sherwood Middle School. If you are not sure of your home middle school by address, just let us know in the office and we can look it up for you. You also have the option of filling out a lottery application to any of our CCS Middle Schools.

How do I know what Middle School is best for my child?

VISIT: I highly encourage you to visit the school BEFORE you make a decision. You can visit schools and take your child over Winter Intersession. All CCS Middle Schools will be holding visits every Wednesday starting January 15 until February 26. Simply call the school before you go to schedule a visit.

ATTEND THE FAIR: Each year our district holds an Informational Fair so that parents can meet the staff at each school and get information regarding the special programs at each school.

Elementary and Middle School Information Fairs: Thursday, February 6, 2014 from 6-7:30 p.m. at Arts Impact MS, 680 Jack Gibbs Blvd.

Where do I turn my application in to?
