Middle School 101
Middle School 101 camp is designed for rising 6th grade students. This camp teaches students how to effectively communicate with their teachers and peers, use study skills, organize, and manage their time for the upcoming school year. Students will learn how to use Gmail, Google Docs, and their St. B’s Chromebook. The transition from elementary to middle school comes with many expectations; Middle School 101 will prepare your student with academic tools they can apply to their new and varied class schedule. A quote from Mrs. Parrino – “I took something like Middle School 101 camp and it changed my academic life forever. I was disorganized and did not know how to study. This summer camp changed my view and gave me the tools I needed to make the transition from a carefree elementary student to a well prepared middle school student.”
Instructors: Ginny Parrino
Grades: Rising 6th Grade: 9:00am-1:00pm

Students who attend the camp should proceed to the next grade level with strengthened confidence in their abilities to write grammatically correct sentences and paragraphs and to employ MLA style and format.
