OSMS Middle School Counts Program

Summer Program 

 

Middle School Counts Summer Program was created to provide pre-teaching to students entering grades 6 through 9.  The students were recommended by their teachers, and the four week program offered math, science, social studies and english curriculum to the students.  Students completed five four-hour sessions in the month of July. The students were responsible for completing small assignments outside of class. 

The mission of this program is to give an opportunity to learn topics ahead of time to make the child’s transition to the middle school a bit easier while building independence, time management and confidence. 

The program included students at OSMS as well as students entering 6th grade from all of the district’s elementary schools.  The sixth grade students were given the opportunity to learn the building, meet some of their teachers, and master their locker combinations. 

This year transportation was offered to the students.  Students were able to catch a bus from four area locations to enable them to participate in the program.  Middle School Counts is a positive experience for all of the students who attended and the teachers who provided the instruction.  The students will enter the Fall with more confidence because they know the material that will be taught within the first ten weeks, and they have established relationships with some of the teachers that they will have in the Fall.
