Middle School Transition

Dear 5th Grade Parents,
The packet sent home with your child contains important information regarding your child’s transition to middle school.

The middle school election card is used to select elective courses for 6th grade.
Please take time with your child and determine the elective courses they are most interested in.
In the packet, we have provided a summary of the elective courses.

*Rank choices 1-5 (1 being most desirable) on the paper election card provided. (Descriptions are attached)
*Select your choice of Family Life Education or the “opt out” choice and sign the card. (Information for Family Life is attached.)

***Please fill out the card based on the middle school stated, no changes of school may be made on the card***
this cannot be changed in the computer system and will only cause delays for your child’s choice of elective course

*If there is a change in address before next year or if you have applied for Open Choice we will work with you to transfer your student’s information to the proper school.

*If your child would like to participate in band or orchestra an instrument intent form is also attached. This allows a student to borrow an instrument at no cost.

***Deadline for all election cards is April 26th.***

*** All choices must be entered into the computer system by this date. If we do not receive the card by this date, choices will be made by middle school counselors/data managers

If you have any questions or concerns please call, 815-6948 ext. 131

Thank you,

Jennifer Amorelli and Caitlyn Rosander
Sunset Park School Counselors
