Parents,

The 21st Century ACE Program and LCMS have come together to offer a great summer program for 2016


ACE - LCMS provides extended learning opportunities for students and offers innovative, hands-on activities that reinforce and complement students' regular academic programs. Our summer activities are based on research and best practices to get students active and engaged this summer. We are excited that our summer program will strive to help students prepare for college and the workplace. We will do this with our Youth Career Fair and Career Day activities for sixth through eighth graders, engineering class and culinary class.


Enjoy the company of like-minded individuals as you learn a new skill, prepare for a new adventure in life, or simply add some genuine satisfaction to your day.


These summer enrichment programs are free of charge and we will offer classes Monday through Friday from 8am-12pm throughout the month of June. (Tuesday, May 31 - Friday, June 25)

SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION WILL BE DISCUSSED, SO THIS IS SOMETHING OUR 8TH GRADERS COULD USE AS THEY ENTER HIGH SCHOOL. PLEASE COME AND LISTEN TO WHAT CINDY BEST HAS TO OFFER THROUGH WELLS FARGO! LOTS OF OTHER GUEST SPEAKERS THAT WILL PROVIDE GREAT CAREER INFORMATION.

STEM/Engineering Class presented by TTU

Wait, stop! Don’t throw away that water bottle, we are going to need it. During this engineering camp we will be working as green engineers and mechanical engineers to solve a variety of problems and have fun. When an engineer is solving a problem using green engineering, it means that he or she is thinking about how to solve the problem in a way that prevents harm to the environment. Green engineering is a way of thinking that can be applied to any engineering problem. Mechanical engineering is one of the largest and most diverse fields of engineering. Mechanical engineers are people who use their creativity and knowledge of science and math to solve problems related to various kinds of machines. This camp involves two challenges. The first challenge involves creating race cars out of recyclable materials and then racing against each other until we find the fastest recycled racer. The second challenge involves building traps to catch a pesky critter that is causing all kinds of problems. Bring your creativity, thinking caps, and willingness to try new things.

Write Brain Books authored by STUDENT

WRiTE BRAiN BOOKS are ILLUSTRATED, WORDLESS BOOKS with lines on the pages for a student author’s original story. Through an in-depth & standards aligned literacy course in the art of children's book authoring, students K-12 write thoughtfully crafted storybooks and are published in the process.


First, students collaborate in groups to write and donate a coauthored book, then each writes independently, receiving high-quality, professionally printed, perfect bound copies of their self-authored books. Every student's self-esteem and test readiness elevates as vital academic and social skills develop.


*** Writing equips a student with the communication and thinking skills he or she will need to participate effectively, at all grade levels, throughout their schooling and life as they form relationships, enter the workforce and build community.


"The kids LOVE authoring their WRiTE BRAiN Books! Their ability to focus and create a story through a collaborative process with their peers far surpassed our expectations."
