Dear Parent/Guardian:

It is a pleasure to welcome you and your child to Clayton Middle School.  I hope you have had a relaxing and enjoyable summer break.  The new school year will arrive before you know it.

The purpose of this letter is to invite you and your child to attend 6th Grade Orientation on Tuesday, August 27th, 2019 from 8:00 a.m. to 10:35 a.m.

This orientation will provide you and your child with important information and tools to help them succeed at CMS.  During the orientation, students will receive a copy of their schedule and the following topics will be covered to ease the transition to middle school:


Location of lockers and practice combinations

Academic requirements

“Sail to Success” Initiative Parent Session

Location of classes

Code of Conduct

Supplies required for school

Transition to middle school

Cooperative games (students should wear comfortable clothes and sneakers)


You and your child should arrive at the HS/MS cafeteria at 8:00 a.m. for a continental breakfast and welcoming session.  Parents will have an opportunity to purchase Physical Education uniforms for $20.00 at 8:45 a.m. in the Performing Arts Center.  Please see attached schedule for the remainder of the orientation.

The new school year provides the opportunity for your child to work toward his or her educational goals to ensure a successful future.  We need your help and support in making sure your child comes to school ready to learn and willing to participate in our many programs and activities.

Thank you for your help and support.  On behalf of the staff, teachers, and administration, I want to welcome your child to the new school year and wish him or her much success.
