Summer Fun Leads into School Year Program...

The FILM @ 6 Summer Academy was a busy, fun 5-week program offered to over 110 rising 6th graders planning to attend China Grove Middle, Corriher-Lipe Middle, North Rowan Middle, and Southeast Middle.  Students spent time learning about their middle school building, middle school staff, school expectations, meeting new friends, and practicing those sometimes frustrating combination locks.  Field trips and STEM activities kept everyone very busy, totally engaged, and looking forward to the beginning of middle school as well as the FILM @ 6 after school program.

The transition from elementary school to middle school can be difficult to navigate and that is where FILM @ 6 comes in.  With funding from North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, we are providing the summer academy and a 27-week after school program to 6th graders.  The after school program will run from September 29 through May 7, Monday through Thursday each week for 2 1/2 hours each day.  Students will receive a snack and have time to complete homework each program day.  Tutors at each site will help with homework and lead the students through various hands-on activities in the areas of forensic science, engineering, Lego robotics, and filmmaking.
