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. 14, two days before the first day of school on Aug. 16.

Elementary Meet Your Teacher Night provided all elementary students with the opportunity to visit their schools, and it was also held Aug. 14. Students and their families visit their new classrooms, meet their teachers for 2017-18 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.

The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District has more than 18,000 students this school year in grades kindergarten through high school.

Students participate Transition Day at Pleasant Lea Middle School.







Returning students share information about student clubs and activities during Club Rush at Lee’s Summit High School.
