Add to Calendar 2022-08-04 00:00:00 2022-08-05 23:59:00 America/New_York JumpStart Program

What is JumpStart?

The purpose of the 2022 JumpStart Program is to introduce rising 7th grade students to Carl Sandburg Middle School. Students will familiarize themselves with the layout of the school; including a tour of classroom locations, cafeteria setup, gym locker room layout (boys and girls) and much more! Our hope is to ease your child’s transition into middle school as well as address positive study skills, time management and organizational skills. The JumpStart Program has been shown to aid in the elimination of any anxiety and fear that the first day of school may bring. During the program, future Panthers will have a chance to meet teachers and former seventh grade students that help facilitate the program.

The dates will be August 4th and 5th.  When registration opens, parents can select either day.  There will only be 125 slots per day. The camp is first come first serve.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Jamaal Carter ([email protected]).
