Colonel John Wheeler Middle School PTA

    6th Grade Bulldog Rush

    Bulldog Rush will be held on Friday, August 14th at Colonel Wheeler. This orientation day is intended for sixth grade students only.  Parents can drop-off and pick-up students at entrance 12S on the south side of the building.  Bulldog Rush is structured to recognize social distancing and the appropriate safety precautions. We will be conducting Bulldog Rush in two 75 minute segments.  Please see the times below. The goal of our event is to provide an outline of our school expectations and to enhance student’s confidence before the first day of school. Students will meet our sixth grade staff, visit their locker, and identify where their classes are located.  Please have your student bring a printed copy of their schedule and a mask.  Masks are required to be worn at all times.  We appreciate your help and cooperation.


    Students with last name      A - L   (9:00AM – 10:15AM)


    Students with last name      M - Z    (11:00AM – 12:15PM)


    *If your student is beginning the school year through distance learning, you can find our Bulldog Rush presentation on our Website.  There will also be additional resources provided in the coming weeks.
