Upcoming Programs for the Summer

  • FOR QUALIFIED CURRENT K-3 STUDENTS, THERE WILL BE A SUMMER READING CAMP DURING THE MONTH OF JUNE TO HELP THEM CLOSE THE GAP TOWARD REACHING THEIR CORRECT READING LEVEL. THIS COMES FROM THE STATE DEPARTMENT'S CURRENT ALABAMA READING INITIATIVE. LETTERS OF INVITE WILL BE SENT HOME WITH QUALIFIYING STUDENTS IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS. IF ALL THE SPOTS DO NOT FILL WITH QUALIFYING STUDENTS, WE WILL OPEN UP THE REMAINING SPOTS FOR OTHER STUDENTS. WE WANT ALL OUR SPOTS FILLED. :-) BUS TRANSPORTATION, BREAKFAST, AND LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED.


  • FOR GRADES K-11, THERE WILL BE A 5TH QUARTER DURING THE MONTH OF JULY FOR STUDENTS THAT DO NOT PASS DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR. THIS PROGRAMS WILL TAKE PLACE A ONE SCHOOL PER FEEDER PATTERN. FOR OUR SCHOOL IT WILL BE AT BURROUGHS. BUS TRANSPORTATION WILL BE PROVIDED.


ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON BOTH PROGRAMS WILL BE SHARED SOON.
