Effingham County Middle School recently hosted a sixth-grade parent night.

The program, called Building Bridges, was designed to help parents of sixth-grade students with their transition from the elementary-school to the middle-school environment.

Sixth-grade students and their parents/guardians enjoyed a light dinner before visiting each of the academic teachers’ classrooms. Teachers shared information covering classroom and school-wide policies and procedures, and offered parents a glimpse into the typical academic day at ECMS.

“We had a fantastic turnout,” said ECMS parent liaison Mariella Manhatton. “Building Bridges was a huge success thanks to the combined efforts of ECMS school personnel, parents and students.”

It was the first time Effingham County Middle hosted a sixth-grade parent night. ECMS plans for it to be an annual event.
