    Welcome to Robert Eagle Staff Middle School, where we
    are nurturing leaders who are engaged citizens, scholars, artists, and activists.

    Dear Eagle Staff 6th  Grade Students and Families,

     

    Welcome to the Robert Eagle Staff Middle School community. It is an honor to partner with you in your middle school journey. Over the next few years you will have the chance to explore new ideas, master new skills, and learn from your teachers and peers. Our primary goal is to ensure that you as a student are challenged to grow in core academic content, in critical thinking and problem solving, in your ability to collaborate and communicate, and in developing a strong belief in yourself. We want you to have fun and learn that you can do anything with hard work and persistence.


    Thursday, August 30th, from 9am-12pm all incoming 6th grade students are invited to come to school for our WEB (Where Everybody Belongs) Orientation.  This is not your typical orientation!  We'll start our morning with a fun and energetic assembly and then break into smaller groups (approx. 12 students and 2 8th grade WEB Leaders).  In small groups you'll get to meet new people, play fun games designed to ease the transition to middle school, get to know your WEB leaders and finish off with a tour of the school.  Students will continue to meet and be with their WEB Leaders throughout the school year.  The orientation is not mandatory but HIGHLY recommended.  We have a lot of fun!  Just a side note, this is a student only event.  Questions?  please e-mail Mrs. Wynkoop at
    rlwynkoop@seattleschools.org
