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 sixth grader!
The Middle School/High School (MS/HS) HSA is here to support you and your child as you make this transition, and through all your years in the middle school and high school. We help connect families with the school and inform you about activities through our HSA email communications and our website known as GR Chips.* We post relevant information and links right here on this site - www.grchips.com.
*The “Chips” name possibly stems from a wise old HSA website/newsletter founder’s attempt to associate us with “The Rock,” but we can’t confirm its origin.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * To receive email communications from the MS/HS HSA, send your email address (AND CONFIRM CHILD'S GRADE) to MS.HS.HSA@gmail.com – In the subject line, put: “Email address - 2017-18” PLEASE DO THIS TODAY to ensure you’re on our distribution list! * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * ** * * * The Middle School has added a new “Incoming Sixth Graders”tab to its web page to help you get to know the Middle School. The MS Principal, Dr. Jennifer Wirt, and Assistant Principal Brian Pepe (see photos, right) have included a question-and-answer link and will be adding more information as time goes on. Even if you are not new to the school, please review this tab periodically to catch any school policies and procedures that may 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!
Questions? Send email to email@example.com and a member of our executive board will get back to you.
We have three HSA volunteers who will serve as 6th grade resources and are happy to answer questions and perhaps ease concerns.
