For students entering grades 1-5

Jump Start is a fun-filled week of activities designed to help students prepare for the upcoming school year. Each morning will be spent refreshing students’ math, reading, and writing skills, while the afternoons will be filled with art, computer skills, P.E., and science!

This is an all-day program with lunch and recess scheduled mid-day. *FOOD IS NOT PROVIDED, so please have your child bring a sack lunch. If weather permits, recess will be outside, so please put sunscreen on your child before Jump Start.
