The district’s newest seventh-graders visited Edmund W. Miles Middle School on Aug. 24 to learn about the place where they will spend the next three years.

The seventh-grade orientation followed their visit to the school in the spring during which they were able to tour the building. Principal Edward Plaia reviewed the classes that students will take, extra-curricular activities and sports that are offered, academic and behavioral expectations and the differences from elementary school. Students and parents were given the opportunities to ask questions. 

The approximately 215 incoming seventh-graders received their class schedules and also were able to take home free binders. They were also able to meet their guidance counselor for the coming year, Kerry Kearney, and several teachers.
