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.

But, with pandemic restrictions, that’s not possible, so East is starting zoom luncheons for parents and students next week.
