Mountaineer Middle School Host Annual “Move Up Day”


Mountaineer Middle School hosted their annual “Move Up Day”, where fifth grade students from Clarksburg schools; North View Elementary, Adamston Elementary, Salem and Wilsonburg Elementary Schools have the opportunity to become familiar with their new school.

During the day, students have the opportunity to meet their new administrators, take a tour of the campus given by Mountaineer Middle School eighth graders, watch an informational video, and ask questions about their soon to be new school.

The information that is included in the video is prepared by the eighth-grade students, and is a way for current students to let the soon to be middle school students know what they wish they would have known coming into Mountaineer Middle School.

“It makes me feel relieved to get to know people like the principal and seeing where to go for my different classes”, said Macie Hustead, North View Fifth Grader.

Adamston and North View Elementary Schools’ Counselor Kelly Davission explained why Move Up Day takes place,“It’s a great opportunity for students to ask questions, which helps relieve some of the anxiety that comes with moving to a new school.” Davission continued, “Bringing all these schools out at one time allows students to become familiar with their future classmates and develop new friendships”.

Mountaineer Middle School Principal John Rogers gave his future students a warm welcome to the school. Mr. Rogers also took the time to answer questions the students had. One question being about the quality of lunch, where the future sixth graders were happy to hear that the school has a salad bar to choose from three times a week. A major difference students were told they would be experiencing the incorporation of an iPad into their curriculum.

Mountaineer Middle School Assistant Principal Becky Sabatelli explained how beneficial the day is to the middle school’s soon to be students. “This program is set up every year by the school counselors, and it is a great opportunity for students to meet the administration, get a feel for the school, and enjoy the video that is prepared by our eighth-grade students”, she said. “When the first day of school comes, all of the information they hear will just be a refresher because of Move Up Day, and make the transition that much smoother for students”, Sabatelli continued.
