Welcome Fifth Grade Parents/Guardians:

Below is a list of events that will take place over the next few months to assist you and your fifth grader in getting ready for the middle school experience.

April 17

An orientation program will provide basic information for parents about the middle school experience.  This one hour program is primarily for parents new to the middle school, but all parents are welcome to attend.  This program will be at 6:30 p.m. in the BRMS Step Room.  If you have questions regarding curriculum and offerings, please contact Amie Pittman, Counselor(A-L) at 845-4128 or Ajong Elvis, Counselor(M-Z) at 845-4127.  The Curriculum Handbook is posted online for Badger Ridge at and Core Knowledge at

April/Early May:

The middle school will be gathering information from the elementary schools regarding students coming to BRMS.  This will assist us as we schedule and place students in houses, which will begin in early May.

May 2-11:

Middle school principals visit elementary schools.  Current sixth grade students will share information about middle school and answer questions from fifth graders during this visit.

May 14:

This will be our formal orientation program for all parents and students.  Students and parents will spend approximately one hour with sixth-grade teachers.  This is a very important event as a variety of information will be shared by teachers regarding the sixth-grade experience.  Note to parents requesting open enrollment – you are welcome to attend this program, however, there is no guarantee that there will be an open enrollment placement option available. 

This program will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will be held in various locations at BRMS/CKCS.

We look forward to working with you and your fifth grader as you make the transition from elementary school to middle school.  If your child will not be attending the Verona School District next year, please call 608-845-4105.
