FIRST DAY for 7th Grade: Monday, July 30, 2018 
We are very excited that your child will be attending Millswood Middle School and we look forward to meeting them on the first day of school!  The 7th Grade Orientation & Rally is designed to make the transition from elementary school to middle school a positive one.  The Orientation & Rally will take place after students have attended their classes in the morning (see schedule below).

Eighth grade students will serve as leaders and mentors to seventh grade students during small group activities that will take place on the back field.  Our eighth grade students bring with them the experience and knowledge on how to guide your child in having a successfully academic, social and personal school year.  Have your child wear comfortable clothes to play in and travel light…..they will not need to bring anything with them the first day of school.
