Jump Start is a fun week designed to make students eager for school, while also easing them back into a learning routine. The days are filled with exciting learning opportunities that serve as themed reviews of skills and knowledge.

Each morning was spent refreshing students’ math, reading, and writing skills, while afternoons are dedicated to art, computers, PE, and science. Students could take part in the morning session, the afternoon session or both. The program wrapped up on Aug. 8.

Jump Start is dedicated to preparing students entering grades 1–5 for the upcoming year, but all students have a lot to look forward to in the 2014–2015 school year. From new school clothes and supplies, to meeting new friends, and learning new facts, a new school year always means new school fun.
