  • The transition to middle school can be scary for students and parents. Jump Start is a non-academic program designed for incoming 6th-grade students to help with that transition. It's built to increase middle school readiness skills and get students excited for 6th grade!

    Please note the date change due to transportation issues from MONDAY, AUGUST 1st through THURSDAY, AUGUST 4th from 8:15 (breakfast start time) - to 11:45 am.  Sign up for this program is closed, thanks! Bus route information is now published on this website. Please note that if you have questions, please contact Marla Holdridge (marla.holdridge@d11.org) since she is now the Jump Start coordinator. All questions during the summer and the week of the program should go through her. Thank you!
