Welcome Incoming 6th Grade Students and Families
Dear Parents/Guardians of Incoming 6th Grade Students:
We are excited to welcome you and your child to our middle school family. The first step in this process is to develop your child's sixth-grade program. As a sixth-grade student, your child has the opportunity to begin the study of World Language and participate in a musical performance group (band, chorus or orchestra).*
We ask that you and your child complete a course selection form by February 19, 2021. Links to our program description, World Language welcome letter and course selection form are provided at the bottom of this page. Please note that you must use your child's GNPS Google account when logging in to complete the selection form. The course selection form can also be found on your child's 5th grade Google Classroom page.
We hope you will attend our Incoming 6th Grade Parent Orientation on the following date:
North Middle School 6th Grade Parent Orientation
Wednesday, March 10 at 7:00 pm
In May, incoming students will participate in a middle school orientation. They will also have an opportunity to meet their new school counselor during our visit to the elementary schools in June.
We want you to know that we are eager to help you in every way we can. Feel free to speak with us if you need advice or clarification in selecting a course of study. If you need a paper copy of our sixth-grade program, please contact the North Middle School Counseling Center at (516) 441-4520.
Gerald Cozine, Ed. D., Principal

Course Selection Form (Complete by Feb. 19, 2021)
* Although many students begin World Language study in sixth grade, children who have other academic intervention needs may delay the study of a language until the eighth grade, when they will begin Spanish. This also may apply to participation in a performing group. You can read about sixth-grade programs by visiting our school website.
