    Virtual Orientations for Incoming 6th Graders
    Posted on 05/26/2020

    Hello Families of Future Eckstein Eagles,

    We are very excited to welcome your 5th grader to Eckstein in the fall. We are sure they have many questions about how Eckstein works and what they can expect in the 6th grade. In order to address those questions we have arranged online orientation sessions with 5th grade teachers at our usual feeder elementary schools as well as a session especially for 5th graders coming from other elementary schools both public & private. We really look forward to seeing them “virtually” soon & helping them feel more comfortable about the transition to middle school

    The schedule will be as follows:
    May 27th @ 1 pm = Greenlake
    May 28th @ 12 pm = Thornton Creek
    May 29th @ 12 pm = For students from public & private elementary schools not listed here
    June 3rd @ 1:30 pm = View Ridge
    June 4th @ 11 am = Bryant
    June 9th @ 1:30 pm = Wedgwood
    June 10th @ 1 pm = Laurelhurst
    June 11th @ 1 pm = Sand Point

    For students coming from public & private schools not listed above, we will send you a link for a Microsoft Teams meeting and/or you can email Niki Duncan nmduncansort@seattleschools.org for the link. For students coming from the schools listed above, their 5th grade teachers will have the link for either Teams or Zoom meeting and will share that with you.

    WEB Day (save the date!) - On Tuesday, August 25th, incoming 6th graders will be invited to WEB Day in our gym. WEB stands for “Where Everyone Belongs.” The program matches Eckstein’s 8th graders with incoming 6th graders in small groups. The purpose of this day is to connect incoming students with each other and existing students, get familiar with the campus, and get all of their questions answered.

    For students with Special Education Services:

     ~ Eckstein case managers are in the process of meeting with Elementary case managers to learn more about the student, discuss student strengths and needs, and possible student schedules.

    ~ An informational video will be coming your way with information about Eckstein special education services & staff
