TRANSITION PROJECT

 

The Transition Project aims to ease the transition into middle and high school for 6th and 9th graders. This is a critical time for students, often requiring multiple types of interventions to ensure academic and social success. Our workshops specifically for this age group help build community in the classroom, encourage collaboration and measured risk-taking among peers, and establish positive connections to teachers and the school.
