Dear East or Central 5th Grade Parent/Guardians:

We are please to announce that we have begun the process of transitioning your child from elementary to middle school. Your child is scheduled to enter the Pembroke Pines Charter Middle School (Central Campus) on August 24, 2015. This is an exciting time for your child to begin to take on more responsibility and independence as they enter middle school. However, many parents become nervous as this time approaches. We hope to reassure you and alleviate your concerns when we meet on Thursday, January 29, 2015 at 6pm in the Central Campus Cafeteria, PARENT ONLY MEETING.

We will have multiple presentations and performances to showcase what to expect for your child as they enter middle school. Our curriculum team of highly qualified educators will review the core and elective course available to your child. Also, a sampling of our extracurricular program will be shared with you by our student performers.

Following our program presentation, you will be able to visit our mini-curriculum fair to ask questions of our staff and local partners (i.e., PTSA, Transportation, Planet-T Uniforms, Sports Program, etc.) and obtain information to help you to complete your child's registration materials.
