Transition to Middle School

photo of studentsTransition to middle school is a big step for a student's road to maturity. The beginning of middle school is both exciting and scary for students, as well as their parents and caregivers. At Putnam Ave., we want to help our rising 5th graders navigate their move to middle school. We have a host of events throughout the year to navigate the aspects of change, such as: logistical, social, and academic. We hope you can join us!
