Middle School DECISION

As was expected, the School Board voted last night to approve the boundary change for Oakton ES and all of our 6th graders will now matriculate to Thoreau Middle School.  Level IV students in the Advanced Academics Program will continue to have the choice between their base school (Thoreau) and the Advanced Academics Program Center (Jackson MS).

Today (Friday, Feb. 23rd), all 6th graders will be bringing home course selection sheets for Thoreau MS.  You can find specific information regarding courses on Thoreau’s school website: CLICK HERE.

Level IV students will also be bringing home the course selection sheet and course booklet for Jackson MS.

All course selection sheets are due to Mrs. Schnaue by  Monday, March 5.
