Jump Start Program
Longfellow is excited to host the summer Jump Start Program. The Jump Start program is a primarily nonacademic transitional program that focuses on helping rising 7th graders get to know LMS and the expectations of middle school. Students will participate in sessions covering topics such as study skills, test taking strategies, and time management techniques with a Longfellow counselor. Jump Start to Success helps ensure a smoother transition to middle school by introducing students to staff, peers, school layout, and basic policies before the school year begins. Students will partake in scavenger hunts, locker relay races, and daily physical education activities throughout the week as well. There will be two sessions with the same content (sessions are separated due to the number of participants). Session A will take place August 3rd and 4th from 8:30-12:30 and Session B will take place August 5th and 6th from 8:30-12:30.We will do our best to accommodate your session request. The fee for the program is $25 and financial assistance is available for students in need. Payment must be submitted using MySchoolBucks.
