    Monday, August 27th    6th Grade Student Orientation 

    9:00am – 12noon 

    Class Registration

    Most students get to select two “elective courses” in middle school. All students take Language Arts, Social Studies, Math, and Science. Please talk with your child’s 5th grade teacher if you have questions about middle school reading and math class placement. Our Math and Reading Empowerment courses are great options for students in need of additional time in these subjects than our typical middle school schedule provides.  Please see the student registration materials for more information. 

    Your Middle School Counselor

    At Jane Addams we have three counselors, with each staying with the same students all three years of middle school. Ms. Lucas, Mr. Bilides, and Ms. Sieg will all have office hours at JAMS scheduled in late August to answer any questions or discuss any concerns for the upcoming school year.

    Please start to check out our webpage at addamsms.seattleschools.org on a regular basis for updates. There you can find staff contact information as well as calendars, school policies, school supply lists, and other important information. 

    We look forward to meeting you all.

    Sincerely,

    Paula Montgomery

    Principal, Jane Addams Middle School
