The move from 5th grade to middle school is an important right of passage at MGCS. Our 5th grade team works through the year to ensure that students are prepared to make a smooth transition to this next stage in their academic journey. This year, we combined important content from our Manners curriculum with existing instruction about key academic practices to form the Middle School Prep program to equip students for success in the years ahead.
