Dear Sixth Grade Families,
Welcome to Glen Rock Middle School!
Whether you will be a first-time Middle School family, or you have already been through the Middle School experience, this is a very exciting time for you and your incoming 6th grader!
The Middle School/High School (MS/HS) HSA is here to support you and your child now, as you make this transition, and through all your years in the middle school and high school. One way we help connect families with the school and inform you about activities is through our HSA email communications and our website known as "GR Chips." We post important information and links right here, on this site: www.grchips.com.

The HSA has put together a welcome information sheet to help you
get to know the Middle School. Even if you aren't new to the school,
please review it; many school policies and procedures have been updated.
As your child becomes a teenager, and you determine a new role that respects your child’s need for independence while still remaining involved and supportive, please know that that there are still lots of ways to volunteer and contribute to your child’s Middle School experience.
Come to an HSA meeting in the fall (dates are on the About Us page), and find out more! We can’t wait to see all the wonderful talents and contributions you will bring to the Middle School!
Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org or to any member of our executive board. Our emails can be found on the Contact page.
We have three HSA volunteers who will serve as 6th grade resources and are happy to answer questions and perhaps ease concerns.
We can’t wait to meet you!
MS/HS HSA President
