Rising 6th Grade Virtual Orientation

Dear Rising 6th Grade Families:
Managing the transition from elementary to middle school can be a challenge for students and parents.  Due to school closures related to COVID-19, the WMS staff has had to condense what we would normally provide while still trying to meet the needs of our families. We are excited to offer a virtual orientation (https://williamsburg.apsva.us/wp-content/uploads/sites/39/2020/05/Rising-6th-grade-1-1.pdf) for our rising 6th grade students!  It will include information about the school day, teams, how to get involved after school and messages from Mr. Boykin, Principal, and Ms. Brenckle, School Counselor.  We hope you find the presentation informative and helpful for your family in learning more about 6th grade at Williamsburg Middle School. Additionally, we have updated our Rising 6th Grade Transition with a robust list of FAQs, (https://williamsburg.apsva.us/counseling/academic-planning/rising-6th-grade-transition/) for our rising 6th grade students and parents.  Within the page, we have included answers about a typical school day and how lockers are assigned to students.  If you have a question and it is not listed on the page, please complete the “Welcome to Williamsburg!” Google Form (https://forms.gle/PyNZPmBgFBngpyqR7) and we will respond with an answer.
