6th Grade Transition Page

Here is an overview of the steps we take to be sure incoming sixth graders and parents are ready for middle school. 


Program Planning Guide Review
Counselors visit all elementary schools to review the Seaman Middle School program planning guide and review course options in February. Students take these enrollment materials home to review with parents/guardians.

Enrollment for 7th Grade
One week after the counselors visit elementary schools, 6th grade teachers enroll students for next year. Parents will still need to complete online enrollment.

SMS Tour
Students tour the middle school in early May as part of the student transition process. This tour takes place during the school day. 

Schedules Posted
Schedules for the upcoming year are posted in PowerSchool in late May or early June.

Schedule Changes
Schedule changes can be made in early June. Students can email, call, or stop by the middle school on an assigned day in late May or early June. Students can also contact counselors throughout the summer. If needed, students will have a few days when school starts to change schedules.

Online Enrollment
Online enrollment will open for parents in July. All parents/guardians must complete online enrollment.
