Transition to 6th Grade Meeting

Parents of 5th grade students,

The Counseling Department at Westlake Middle School  has a proud tradition of providing multiple transition events for our 5th grade families and students as they wrap up elementary school and move on to middle school.

Below are the dates for upcoming events. One of these events are for parents only, several are for students only, and others are for parents and students or for the whole Westlake community (including siblings, grandparents, etc).  The transition information presented at these events is often presented at other events too, so it is not necessary to attend all of these events. Additional information about each event will be sent out prior to the event.

**The first event is in just a few weeks! Please RSVP by December 9th here!
