Welcome Fifth graders and Families to Mahone!
This year Fifth Grade Open House will be held at each middle school on Monday, May 8, 2017 from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Come learn about the middle school structure and the many opportunities your child will have once they enter the middle school environment. Families will have the opportunity to tour the school and visit with 6th grade classroom teachers, the counselors and the principals. Don’t forget to bring your Gear-Up form and turn it into our office on May 8th.
Gear - Up for Middle School
Gear-Up is a class that introduces new students to the various aspects of middle school. This class is helps students transition to their new school. The purpose of Gear-Up is to familiarize new students to their school. Students will get a chance to meet fellow classmates, tour the building, learn schedules, policies, how to open lockers, and ask questions related to the upcoming school year. It is highly recommended that all students attend so that the transition from grade school to middle school will be a positive one.

All Mahone students can run the race for free, but students need to raise $30 to be registered.
Registration includes: a color run t-shirt, a color run backpack, and color to throw after the race. Each
additional $30 gets the student an extra registration. Extra registrations may be used for friends or

check donations have no minimum amount. Checks should be made out to Mahone PTSA. Students
