This week starting on Monday the 22nd of January, elementary schools in the Asheville City School District toured Asheville Middle. There were 8th grade student tour guides who showed them around.
The tourists were 5th grade classes with their teachers. On the tour, kids learned what some of the electives and core classes were; they also learned the layout of the building. The 5th graders were very curious about electives and what they were. They also wanted to know about how much homework there would be.
Many of the kids were fascinated about being able to play competitive sports and sing in Chorus or play an instrument in Strings or Band. ¨They were very inquisitive and interested to join the Asheville Middle Cougar family,¨ said 8th grade tour guide, Ainsley.
This was a great opportunity for the 5th graders to learn about the middle school and learn the ropes. We look forward to seeing these rising sixth graders soon!
