New Student Transition

Welcome to Clinton Rosette Middle School! I know both students and parents are filled with excitement and anxiety facing this new adventure of middle school. It is my hope that at the end of this school year there will be nothing but positive memories. Whether you are a new student or moving in, supporting the transition to middle school is an important part of a student's life. Below is a collection of resources for students and families specifically for new students.

Get Started and Get Involved

The Rosette Gazette is a document that leads a student through a typical day at CRMS, including before school and after school clubs, sports, and activities.

Some Help Figuring Out Middle School

Here are some videos to help answer frequently asked questions about middle school and 6th grade. Check them out!

Good to Know About CRMS!

Activity Bus

Offered to students who ride the bus to school, we provide a late bus for students who wish to stay for clubs Monday-Thursday. The stops are different than the regular route, so we developed an easy-to-use “cheat sheet” to help our students.

Skyward and Gradebook!

Syward is our information management system, which houses all student grades, attendance, and essential information. Two separate tutorials, Part 1 & Part 2 are available to help you navigate this system.

Other academic resources including teacher blogs, your child’s specific homework calendar, Google Classroom help, and more is available.

Student Drop-Off and Pick-Up

The parent drop off and bus pick-up lines are different in the morning and afternoon. A diagram of this procedure is available here.

PE Uniforms

Students in our PE classes have uniforms and change in the locker room. Orange shirts and black shorts are an acceptable uniform. We also have these available for purchase in the main office or by filling out this form.


The supply list for the year is a grade level list of what you need for every class. Our PTO also partners with a school supply company to offer a low cost supply box with all materials. School supply box order forms can be ordered through this website.

Getting Involved Through PTO

Our PTO is very supportive in planning school/family events as well as fundraising for field trips. We’d love to have you as part of our PTO by filling out the membership form


Middle School counselors are an integral part of our transition for all new students and do a remarkable job supporting students. Please visit our counselor page for vital resources.
