Camp Meads Mill Registration is Open!

The Children Adjusting to Middle School Program (CAMP) is designed to help incoming sixth graders build personal, academic, and life management skills necessary to successfully transition to middle school. It is particularly helpful to students who have had difficulty with transition in the past or who are anxious about beginning middle school.


Participants will become comfortable with the layout of the school, meet new friends, learn how to open a locker and use a planner, work with the school staff and develop team building skills.


Students attend CAMP at the middle school which they will attend. The registration fee is $170. Scholarships are available in the event of financial hardship. August 12-16, 2019 from 9 am - 2 pm.


Brochures and applications are available for pick-up at each elementary school or you can complete the application online at https://fs26.formsite.com/qpMng9/rwv92yvvb7/index.html.

Supporting the The 7 Habits at home!

7-Habits Take Home Activity for April


This month’s Habit: Habit 6 Synergize

Due Date: April 30, 2019


Habit #6: Synergize

What this means: Working together is better. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts.


“I get along well with other people and work well in groups.”

“I value the strengths of others and allow myself to learn from them.”

“I know that working together as a team we can get more done and come up with better solutions than we could alone.”

“I seek out other people’s ideas to solve problems.”


How can I do this in my life?

With your children, choose a problem you may have (like curfew or completing tasks). Use the Synergy Action Plan to summarize your child's solution and your solution: (1) define the problem, (2) share your views, (3) think of solutions, (4) choose the best solution together. See if you can reach a better solution (The High Way) than either of you could come up with alone.
