During the summer, Sun throws together a great camp that helps incoming freshmen to adapt to high school life. Some of the kids that participate in the program are new to the district, or got bad grades, and/or had some behavior issues. The program offers breakfast and has special work time in the classes.
The beneficials are the students. They develop relationships with the teachers and other students. They also gain extra knowledge.
“Hi, I’m Justice. It helped me prepare for high school by giving a good example of what it would be like,” Justice Smith one time leap program goer says.
The program helps affiliate the incoming students with the school as well as let them create great strong relationships with teachers that work one on one with them.
“The most effective part of the program was the same schedule as normal school days and also the field trips were hand on.” Smith then went on to say, “I wanted to get a feel of what high school was like.”
The program helped students by providing hands on help.
According to Smith, it showed him where the classes were and where everything was situated in the buildings. It also gave him a nice warm welcome to the high school environment.
The program is all around great. It helps prepare students for the upcoming school year. If there is anywhere freshman want to be, it should be at the Summer Leap Program.
