3:00pm- 4:00pm   6th grade 
4:00pm- 5:00pm   7th grade

Since this is a transition year, we decided to stagger the grade levels to allow optimal time. These are recommended times. If you cannot attend during your scheduled time, all teachers will be here until 6:00pm. Faculty and staff will be available Friday morning for those who are unable to attend Thursday evening.  The times for Friday morning will be 8:30-10:30.

 

 
We would like to welcome our new 6th, 7th, and returning 8th graders to West McDowell Middle School along with:
