6th Grade Shadows

Attention Students:

We will be having 6th grade students come over the Jr. High to shadow one of you in order to learn what the Jr. High is about. On the link below students may pick up to three students to mentor, but in the end the situations will be determined by Ms. Emily.  Note that if there is an absolute situation and a student desires one mentor-ship in particular, they should speak with Ms. Emily face to face.

Thank you
