Grade 6 and New Student Orientations

Dear Parents and Guardians: 

We offer you a warm welcome to LaGrange Middle School!  The following information will also be included in the LMS Summer Newsletter, which is planned to be published by Friday, August 12th and will also include much more information about this upcoming school year. 

All incoming 6th grade students, and students new to LaGrange Middle School (LMS), are invited to attend this year’s orientation. The event takes place over three days for all new students and their families. Each session begins with a presentation from members of the LMS leadership team followed by families having the opportunity to walk the building and locate assigned lockers and classrooms.  We expect schedules to be available for viewing through the portal on August 24th, however hard copies of schedules will also be available at the school.   Each presentation will include introductions of administration, faculty, and staff as well as other information that will help to orient new students and families to LMS during the opening days of school. 

This is an open orientation which means that families will be able to choose the best dates and times most suitable for their schedule. Parents, please be advised that any student participating in our orientation program or taking advantage of walk-through opportunities must be accompanied by an adult in the building at ALL times. Students without adult supervision will not be permitted to participate. Please see available dates and times of 6th Grade and New Student Orientation below to select a date and time to attend:
