"Survival necessitates adaptation", in accordance with this central idea, the grade 5 have decided to be well prepared for any obstacle that might arise. Visiting grade 6 allowed the students to be better prepared for their life in middle school. On March 15, the grade 5 students spent three periods and a recess in the grade 6 class. "All of the students were nice and welcoming to us" observed one of the grade 5 students. "They have so many teachers, but they are not so stressed like I thought they might be" mentioned another. "Just like us, when the bell rang they all raced to recess!" exclaimed another.

"Grade 6, here we come!"
