GULFPORT 6TH AND 9TH GRADERS WELCOMED BACK TO SCHOOL A DAY EARLY
Starting a new school year can be scary and overwhelming.
Especially for those students making the jump to middle school and high school..
Which is why the Gulfport school district decided to welcome back upcoming ninth graders and sixth graders a day early.
Students spent the day finding their way around the school, picking up their schedules and meeting their new teachers as well as meeting with their transition counselors.
Sandy Commer-East, Pathways Specialist of the Gulfport School District says, “We are finding that the kids are more apt to ask questions we hope that this is going to make things so much more comfortable for them and just start their school year out right.”
The rest of the students in Gulfport will resume classes Thursday…
