In the Spotlight
Principal’s 8th Grade Promotion Message:
Students, congratulations on completing the requirements of the State of Nevada for promotion from middle to high school. It has been three years of effort, and you have succeeded. Families, we want to also thank you for your support – the last three years have been a joint effort between you, your child, and the administration, teachers and staff at Orr Middle School.
Students, middle school has been your transition from child to young adult. As you embark on your high school career, you will encounter more challenges, but also more great adventures in learning. Embrace both and enjoy!
As we have spent the last couple of months sheltered at home, you, like no other 8th grader before you, have endured a new but temporary normal for learning. When you join your high school classmates, you most likely will be back in the classroom environment. You have shown that you are prepared. Be sure to learn to your best and prepare for college and/or life, while also having fun during your high school journey.
On behalf of the faculty and staff at Orr, I want to again congratulate you on your middle school accomplishments and in earning your promotion to high school. We are all proud of you.
P.S. – Students, a teacher has or will be emailing you a congratulatory / best wishes video. Be sure to check your school email so you will not miss it.
