Students who are entering middle school for the first time are confronted with many challenges that they have not faced before. Van Hoosen 6th graders not only have a new and very large building to become acquainted with, but a new social and academic environment as well. Students must take greater responsibility for their school work, which includes keeping track of assignments/projects/due dates/test dates, etc., from a number of different teachers throughout the course of each day. Most students find that they have more homework and must take more time to prepare for tests and quizzes. It is a lot for any budding adolescent! The 6th Grade Survival Guide presentation is designed to address these issues, and others that your student will likely come face to face with this year . . . and beyond.
