ABCs of Middle School

ABCs of Middle School

In 6th grade, every student takes a class called Middle School Foundations (MSF). You can think of this course as Middle School bootcamp. We work on academic skills that can be applied in all classes like: academic vocabulary, discussion skills, how to study, and how to take good notes. We also learn “soft skills” like time management, organization, leadership, conflict resolution, active listening, team work, emotional regulation, and stress management. The book you are looking at right now is the final project we create at the end of the trimester. Students chose words for each letter of the alphabet and explained its role in student success. We hope you enjoy reading it! We look forward to welcoming you to Olympic View in the fall!
