6th Grade CAMP BOost
What is Camp BOOST? It is our 6th grade summer school transition program. We have provided this camp to our students for 8 years. This program came about when trying to figure out a better way for our incoming 6th Graders to transition to our Middle School way of life. Our 6th graders were the biggest offenders of tardies, disorganization and failing to manage their time well. While at a conference I realized they are coming from a one classroom, contained environment to a multiple classroom and locker change every hour environment. They had to be helped to be successful. Thus the birth of Camp BOOST. Students spend 18 days learning how to team build, manage their time, and have fun. :) We have a mock day and show them how to move around the building. They receive their schedule early and their lunch card. They also get to choose their locker first as a bonus. They also get to explore our FACS, ITEC and Computer classes. We provide 3 field trips FREE to them. This year we are going to the Farmington Water Park, the movies, and one other trip. They are also take to the Pool at least once a week. If they complete 15 of the 18 days successfully they receive their school supplies FREE in a bag for their school year. :) That has been a huge success with our parents. I have provided the material that we use for our transition program. You are free to explore them and if you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
