Tippecanoe School Corporation
6th Grade Orientation Invitation
Jenny Garriott

 

Who:  

This will be for incoming 6th graders only (no parents allowed - sorry.   We will send information electronically to parents.)  Each incoming 6th grader will need a mask for orientation.

What:  

Every Wainwright teacher will assist in this.  It will be a time for 6th graders to meet teachers, take a tour of the building, get their final schedule, practice their locker, listen to what it’s like to be a 6th grader, and receive their Chromebook.

When:  

Tuesday, August 18 from 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm.  Pickup and Drop off will be door 7 (athletic entrance in the back/south of the building)

All students will start spaced out in the gym.  From there we will break into four groups.  These groups will rotate through four different stations.

Station 1 - 6th Grade Introduction / The life of a WMS 6th Grader 
Station 2 - Tour of the Building led by teachers
Station 3 - Locker Practice - Multiple teachers will be assisting
Station 4 - Chromebook Distribution.  Students will receive their Chromebook and brief tutorial on the
chromebook.  It is expected they bring this to school every day.

We understand some will not be able to attend due time of the day, no ride, etc. and that is completely fine.  We will make sure to address these topics and issue Chromebooks at the beginning of the school year with any 6th grader who could not attend.
