I-Connect Event: Chinook Middle School 8th Grader Exit Interview

5/19/2024 1:44 pm


Chinook Middle School 8th Graders
 to Give Advice:


I-Connect Evening Event for Families from
Clyde Hill, Enatai, Medina, and Woodridge Elementary whose students will be attending Chinook next year.

Monday, 10 June 2024
Chinook Middle School

If you are curious what it is like being a student at Chinook Middle School, please join the next    I-Connect meeting, “Exit Interview: Chinook 8th Graders Tell All,” where families will have the opportunity to hear from 8th grade middle school experts who are about to head off to high school.

This will be an evening event on Monday, June 10, 6:15-7.45pm at Chinook Middle School.

As the current class of 8th graders wraps up their last weeks of middle school and gets ready to head off to high school, we will ask our 8th grade panel to give us the unvarnished truth.

-            How does the school schedule work, and how do I know where to go for each period?

-            Is there a lot of homework, and how do I manage my time?

-            What is the best way for middle schoolers to make new friends?

-            What types of clubs and sports are there to participate in during middle school?

-            What resources are there for parents at Chinook?

We will ask these questions and more, and the 8th graders will answer questions from the audience.

Please RSVP here:

Arrive early as we will begin at 6.15pm sharp. No drop-offs allowed; students must be accompanied by an adult. Parents/guardians and students are welcome and encouraged to attend.


This event is ideal for current 5th graders starting middle school this fall – but other elementary school families are welcome.

I-Connect is an award-winning program sponsored by Chinook PTSA. For more information:
