6th Grade Orientation 2019

Remember when your 6th grader was just starting out? Help welcome new 6th grade families to Justice Page Middle School by volunteering for 6th Grade Orientation. We need a lot of parents to ensure the evening runs smoothly. This is a great opportunity for returning JPS parents to give back and help new families feel confident about the adventure that is middle school.

Volunteers should check in with Joan Spehar (our parent liaison) at the check-in table near the main office.

Date: 08/28/2019 (Wed.)
