Sixth Grade Family Orientation Video for Current 5th Grade Families

It is that time of year when multiple transitions are occurring at West Hills! Eighth-grade students are preparing for high school and current LP third-grade students are preparing to enter West Hills. Still, there is another group, our current fifth-grade students, who will be entering middle school in the fall for the first time. And while our fifth-grade students are very familiar with West Hills, middle school is a new experience, and we wanted to make sure that we highlighted how this will impact your students moving to sixth grade. 

Please review the video slide show, and should you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to email us.
