Programs for rising middle schoolers planned for East, North
For parents of students starting 7th grade at East Middle School in the fall, the Great Falls School District would typically host a parent luncheon at the student’s elementary school.

At North Middle School, the counselors and the principal are working on creating a virtual video tour of the school.Beginning the week of May 18, the school will be having Zoom lessons with sixth graders scheduled by the current sixth grade teachers. The lesson will include a time for questions and answers, according to the school.
The school will hold LEAP UP/orientation day Aug. 18. Parents will receive a letter about the event in early August and a parent night is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Aug. 17.
