What are the benefits and problems associated with moving 5th grade classes into middle school?
I am extremely concerned with aging our 5th graders too quickly, their loosing out on being the leaders of their elementary school and associating daily with the older children/experiences. The only online-materials I could find were positive for combining 5th into the Middle School--so I am seeking input. Anyone with similar experience postiive or negative appreciated. Any resources we can share with our School Board as they finalize their decision.
