Students face many transitions during their school years. One of the most significant is the transition from elementary to secondary school (high school). Many school boards as well as individual schools, hold transition events to help students with the transition to high school. Below are flyers for a number of events planned this year. If there is not one listed for your area, ask at the school about events your school board may be holding this spring. There is also a number of articles about planning for life after high school in the High School section of this website.
