Summer Boost at Washington Middle School

Summer Boost at Washington Middle School is a program for current 6th and 7th grade students who would like to gain some skills to help them prepare for the next grade.  During Summer Boost, students will have engaging lessons that incorporate AVID and SEL strategies such as organization and self-advocacy into math and literature.  Students will also have the opportunity to give back to our community by helping with the WMS Community Garden.  WMS teachers are excited to share this opportunity with our students!

Times; 9am-12pm

Location: In person Monday through Friday at WMS

Meals: Breakfast will be served up on arrival and students will have a grab and go lunch at dismissal
