6th Grade Parent Panel Events / Fly Up Day

District 47 has two special events coming up for current 5th grade parents and students designed to help ease the transition to middle school next year! Parent panel events will focus on the student transition to middle school from the perspective of current District 47 middle school parents. Panel discussions consist of an overview of the middle school experience, tips for a smooth student transition, and a Q&A session. The panel is comprised of parents from all three middle schools and the topics covered will be the same at all three meetings. Regardless of a child’s home school for next year, parents are encourage to choose the meeting below that works best for their schedule.
