We offer free assessment testing to all of our students so that we may customize an academic program to fit each child’s needs.

Each week of Summer Program there are games, activities, arts and crafts, water play and a kid movie day in addition to an academic program that focuses on proficiency. There is something to interest everyone!

Summer Camp has officially started with Art Week. Over the past few days the CLC Campers did many art projects, including going to Art from the Heart Cafe and painting on ceramics for Father’s Day gifts.
The students also made their own t-shirts, sun catchers and clay creations!
In addition to all of this, they also went to the local swimming pool and had a blast! (Swimming is a weekly occurrence during Summer Camp!)
Next week is Games Week! The CLC Campers will be going bowling, miniature golfing and playing a variety of games at the center.

By law, schools are required to report violent incidents and states are required to make that information public. Few states are following this mandate. In the aftermath of yet another agonizing, senseless school shooting, it’s impossible not to ask how can we prevent this from ever happening again.
From the school board to the statehouse, the food served at school is the focus of debate.The statistics that started the food fights are familiar: One in five U.S. children is overweight, and increasing numbers of them are developing type 2 diabetes, an illness that used to be limited to adults.
The purpose of this segment is to help connect what is known about students’ cognitive development with what you want them to understand about science concepts and the nature of science. Use this brief description, combined with your knowledge of your students, to guide you in making instructional decisions appropriate for your grade level.

Squirrels. That is what they remind me of. We were all that age once and we were all just like squirrels! Have you ever watched a squirrel? Zoom, freeze for two seconds, flick tail, and repeat. The trick for being a successful middle school teacher is holding their attention for more than just those few seconds. Believing that that is possible requires a huge leap of faith and trust.
