Dear Parents and Students of Grade 6,

The teachers and administration of RDHS have been working to prepare a series of transition activities that will make the move from Elementary school to Intermediate school as smooth as possible. Below we have outlined a series of Transition days that will be essential in assisting you and your child to learn more about RDHS.

On Friday, February 10th, 2017 the RDHS Administration Team will come for a visit to speak to the Grade 6 students from RkPS and PPS about life at Rockland District High School. This is a very personalized and friendly visit that will give the opportunity to the students to listen to the first year experiences shared by Grade 7 & 8 students. RDHS Intermediate students will have the chance to explain the many opportunities available at the school.

On Thursday, March 2nd, 2017 from 5:00pm to 6:30pm, all future grade 7 students and parents are invited to attend this initial information session presented by the school administration in the Learning Commons. This will provide parents the opportunity to ask any questions and have a guided tour of the school. You will also receive information about the 2017-2018 school year.

On Thursday, May 4th, 2017, students will have the opportunity to visit classrooms, learn about leadership council, meet teachers and take part in special activities organized by the student council. This will be an excellent way for the students to prepare for what life will be like in their new school.

On Friday, September 1st, 2017 the Welcoming Day BBQ; Students will have the opportunity to visit the High School to get their locker assignments, homerooms and other information for the first day of school. This will assist students in feeling comfortable with the school and ask questions before the actual first day.

More details on many of these activities will be forthcoming. Please mark your calendars with the dates indicated. We look forward to working with students and parents in their preparation for the high school years.  Please do not hesitate to contact either of us, if you have any questions.
