Incoming 6th grade families

June 6, 2019


Dear Parent/Guardian,


We are pleased to invite all of our sixth graders and their families to come to Highview to meet with their Dean this summer for a 3+1 meeting, so we can get to know you and your student better and help make the transition to middle school a smooth and pleasant one. We will have each sixth grader and their parent/guardian meet one-on-one with their Highview Dean to establish a “3+1 Plan.” Your family will discuss the courses your child will take in three years of middle school and will begin to think about what the first year of high school will look like. This plan will include math and language arts course choices. Families will be invited to set attainable goals and will discuss action steps to take so that those goals are reached.  


Middle school is an exciting time and it is an excellent opportunity to thoughtfully plan for future success. Mounds View Schools are committed to ensuring that all students are ready for multiple options after they graduate from high school and this meeting assists families in establishing a plan that will help their child be ready for post-secondary experiences. We are excited that all sixth grade families will have this 30-minute meeting to create a personalized plan that specifically addresses their child’s future academic success.

Cassandra Larson is currently living in California and will be moving to Minnesota sometime in July.  Ms. Larson will be sending you a letter in July to set up your 3+1 meetings.
