5th grade Summer School

This year, 5th grade students attending Summer School will attend a middle school site. Please click here to see the list of Summer School sites.  5th graders will take a literacy course, a math course, and an enrichment course, as well as participate in a program called Middle School 101 which works to help prepare students for middle school.  This course will focus on a weekly theme which helps prepare students for success in middle school.  

Students may also enroll in the afternoon Youth Resource Center (YRC) program at their summer school site. The YRC program runs from 12:00-4:00 p.m., and includes lunch and other activities. If you would like your child to attend this program, please make sure to select that you would like your child to attend for the full day (from 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.) during the online enrollment process. 

Summer School grades 6-7

The Summer School program provides students in grades 6 and 7 the opportunity to receive additional academic support and build upon their math and literacy skills during the summer. Students who attend this program have received an invitation to attend; the invitation is based upon students' academic performance during the regular school year. The program runs from 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. and is divided into three periods of approximately 80 minutes each. During this time, students receive instruction in either math, literacy or both, and enrichment courses.

Students may also enroll in the afternoon Youth Resource Center (YRC) program at their summer school site. The YRC program runs from 12:00-4:00 p.m., and includes lunch and other activities. If you would like your child to attend this program, please make sure to select that you would like your child to attend for the full day (from 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.) during the online enrollment process. 

8th Grade Summer School Promotion

The 8th Grade Promotion component of summer school is based on state law and MMSD policy. Students who are at risk of non-promotion to 9th grade attend summer school to increase academic skills in order to be promoted to the next instructional level. The courses give students the opportunity for additional study on the subject content areas that require the additional work in order to be promoted to the next grade level.

If your child is at risk for non-promotion, you should have received a letter from your school regarding this process. Please contact your school counselor or principal if you have any questions. 

Students in the 8th grade non-promotion program attend their prospective high school for the summer. These students are enrolled in three 80-minute classes and take a literacy course, a math course, and a course called Freshman 101. The Freshman 101 course works on high school readiness skills such as time management and team building, as well as exposes students to the high school environment.
