Activities include Elementary Meet Your Teacher and Transition Days for seventh and ninth grades
Thousands of Lee’s Summit R-7 School District students had the opportunity to participate in special activities designed to help students make a successful transition into the new school year. Students beginning seventh grade and ninth grade participated in Transition Days, held Aug. 15, two days before the first day of school on Aug. 17.
Elementary Meet Your Teacher Night provided all elementary students with the opportunity to visit their schools, and it was also held Aug. 15. Students and their families visit their new classrooms, meet their teachers for 2015-16 and tour the school.
During Transition Days for seventh- and ninth-graders, students ride the bus to school, go through their regular school day, eat lunch in the school cafeteria and participate in special transition activities.
