Summer School Program – 1st Grade Boot Camp

The teachers at Sherman Elementary School is looking for volunteers for the summer school program, called 1st Grade Boot Camp.  The program begins on July 6th and will run every Monday and Wednesday morning until July 29th and will meet at the Sherman Fire Station.  The subjects that will be emphasized this summer are reading and mathematics.  A classroom teacher will be the facilitator, and they are seeking high school students to work in small groups with the materials the teacher provides.  They need about six students for each date.  The commitment would be about three hours in the morning from 8:30-11:30 a.m.  These hours would count as community service and will be considered an NHS activity for the 2015-2016 school year.  Students can commit themselves to all 8 sessions or sign-up on a day-by-day basis.


Also for students thinking about joining NHS next year, this would be a great way to earn leadership experience as well.  Students wanting the leadership experience should sign-up for a minimum of three to four of the sessions.

A volunteer can sign up for just one week, certain days, or all summer.  The Life without Limits Camp meets at the UCP center for students 6 to 21 years old who have any type of disability.  Camp runs Monday thru Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. starting on June 15 and ending on August 7.
