9th Grade Orientation is being held on 

Thursday, September 3, 2015

9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.


Dear Incoming 9th Grade Parents and Students,

Congratulations on your acceptance to Mastbaum.  We want to invite you and your child to our very important 9th Grade Orientation/Informational Session, which is scheduled for Thursday, September 3, 2015, from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon.  Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the Orientation program will start promptly at 9:00 a.m.   All 9th Grade students are expected to attend.  

During our 9th Grade Orientation, you and your child will be provided with important information about Mastbaum's requirements and expectations.  We know that you want your son/daughter to excel at Mastbaum and develop the necessary skills to enable him/her to have a bright, productive, successful, and happy future.  Entering high school represents a tremendous change and challenge in the life of a young person and his/her family.  As this transition begins, and before school begins, we need for you and your child to learn many important items about Mastbaum.  We recognize that parents are an essential part of their child's success, and we hope that you will be able to participate with your child in our 9th Grade Orientation.  

As your child begins this four-year journey at Mastbaum, it is very important that each year is filled with rewarding and positive experiences and academic success.  All incoming 9th Grade students are expected to participate in this Orientation and Informational Session. 

Thank you for bringing your son/daughter to Mastbaum's 9th Grade Orientation.
