MMS Jump Start - Elementary to MMS Transition

Entering grade 6

It's quite a change going from small Darien elementary schools to the 1200 student-capacity Darien middle school! Wouldn’t it be nice to know how to get around the school easily, how to open a locker smoothly, how to record homework, how to navigate the Library to find books and resources? That know-how is the key of the Jump Start Program. The pace is slow and filled with opportunities to make friends while mastering the floor plan of MMS and the mechanics of 6th grade lockers! The staff of teachers and teenage counselors(formally all MMS 6th graders) work in an upbeat way to maximize student confidence. Students will learn the "ins" and "outs" of Middlesex. The goal is for each student to feel comfortable on the first day of school in the fall. The feedback from JS kids is that they know more folks: teachers and students and they know how to get around MMS from the “start”. Have your child become a Jump Starter!
