Edgemont Families,

Hello! The following is an update about the 6th grade transition to Edgemont.

At their regular meeting on February 27, the Puyallup School District Board of Directors unanimously approved the temporary transition of our Mt. View and Northwood sixth graders next year to the Edgemont Junior High School campus.  In addition to the parent meeting held earlier this year, ongoing meetings with staff at Mt. View and Northwood, and a recent planning trip to Ballou to begin the planning for next school year as we observed the Zeiger 6
th graders on the Ballou campus.

Our next steps include a holding a parent meeting in March (we will announce the date/time soon!), conducting several meetings with our lead team as we continue to plan for the temporary transition next year, and an engaging in ongoing communication with our parents and community.

We look forward to collaborating with you in making the transition smoothly and in our students’ best interest.
