Great Things Happening in Lake County School District –

We recognize that the time between 8th and 9th grade is a BIG transition year for students. Our plan is to make that transition as easy and fun as possible while fostering skills for individual student’s responsibility towards his/her education.

The Eighth- grade Summer Transition Program is in session June 10th – 21st, 2013. Classes begin at 8:30am at CMC and go until 12:30pm, with lunch provided. This program is entirely free and is open to all 8th-grade students moving on to 9th grade.

Throughout the two-week program we will be exposing students to high school standards and expectations through fun activities such as experiential learning projects, study skills, and outdoor leadership activities that will allow students  to meet their teachers and upperclassmen, have fun, and get acquainted with the skills needed for future success.

It truly is a great thing to see these transitioning students having a great time, growing and learning!
