The sixth grade year at K.E.S. stands out as a remarkable time for social growth and maturity in many respects. Sixth graders are viewed as the school leaders; the role models of the school. They are assigned responsibilities to help the school run safely and smoothly. These responsibilities carry over into their schoolwork, where they experience great success at independent learning. These traits help prepare K.E.S. students for a future school experience at Woodstock Union Middle School.
