Parent Information for Grade 6 Residential Program
Each middle school is assigned dates and a site for their grade six outdoor environmental education program. Also, each school creates its own instructional schedule, including classes and activities. It is an expectation that all 6th grade students participate in the residential program. No child should miss this opportunity due to financial need. Questions about program dates, specific scheduling details, cost, and volunteer opportunities can be directed to the school.
