Fifth- to Sixth-Grade Transition Information

  • Transitioning to sixth grade is always an exciting time for students and families. After a year of various learning models and changes, this transition may create anxiety. We are here to help support your student’s transition to Gates Chili Middle School. 

    This transition has always been an important element to success here at GCMS. Our entire building ensures things are as smooth as possible for our students and families. Over the past few months, our school counselors and administrators have been working to begin this process. Check back to this website as we add updates.

    We look forward to the privilege of helping your student navigate this transition successfully.
