LiveBinder with Transition Documents

Dear Elementary Counselors,

Please see the LiveBinder for documents involved in the 5th to 6th grade transition process.  This link is also located on the side bar on the right-hand side of the screen so that you don't have to locate this post each time you need to access the LiveBinder.  After you click on the binder, the access code to open the binder is:  Northbrook.

Hello 5th Graders

Hello 5th Graders-

We are looking forward to meeting you in February during your field trip to NMS.  Please begin to think about what elective classes that you might be interested in taking at NMS.  Please see the choices below:

Theater Arts
Electronic Experiences (electronic keyboard)
Spanish for Native Speakers

Live Binder and Course Selection Sheets

Dear Elementary Counselors,

I will be creating a live binder today on our blog that will include all of  the documents that we will be using during the transition process.  This will be a helpful tool as you begin to visit 5th grade classrooms to familiarize students with our elective course selection sheet.  Please encourage students to ask questions on our blog as we move forward.

We have created a blog to utilize with 5th graders, elementary counselors, and 5th grade classroom teachers, and other staff members involved in the 5th to 6th grade transition process.  The main objective of this blog is for 5th graders to be able to ask questions from their classrooms and for us to share information as we go along.
