MIS/RAL 6th to 7th Registration Night on Tuesday, March 28, 2017 at 6:00PM - Lurgio Media Center

March 24, 2017

Dear Parent/Guardian,

The administration and staff of the Lurgio Middle School are excited to welcome the incoming seventh grade class. We are committed to building a successful two years for all our students, and that begins with the thoughtful and deliberate course registration process that you have already begun.

Attending middle school is a very important step as students develop their academic and organizational skills. At the middle level, students and parents begin to have additional options for course selection. The first area where students have significant choices is in Mathematics. Your child’s sixth grade teacher will make a recommendation about which course is the best fit. Please carefully consider these teacher recommendations, which will be available online on March 28, 2017, the same day you can register your child for classes. You can also use these helpful descriptions (click here) of students who are successful in each course when considering these options.

The second area of significant choice is between a World Language and Academic Support. Many students choose to take on the additional challenge of beginning a high school World Language in seventh grade, but others choose instead to focus on their study skills and executive functioning. Please consider these descriptions (click here) of students who are successful in the different courses to help you as you decide which course is right for your child.

Course selection is the primary driving factor in pod placement. Additionally, we work with the McKelvie leadership and guidance team to form pods that create successful learning environments for all our students. Because of the complexity of balancing scheduling with pod configuration, we are not able to honor specific teacher, pod, or friend requests. We are confident that each of our pods is fully capable of meeting your child’s needs, and all of our teachers look forward to watching your child thrive in the 7th grade.

If you have questions or you would enjoy some assistance with course registration, Lurgio Middle School will be hosting a rising 7th grade registration night on Tuesday, March 28, 2017 at 6:00PM in the Lurgio Middle School Media Center.

If you have questions or concerns about course registration, please do not hesitate to contact me at
