Sentinel View: Student Transition Programs

As published in The Sentinel:

Soon, young people across the Midstate will end their summer vacations and assemble in schools large and small to learn everything from ABCs to calculus.

But many area districts are not waiting until the school year starts to help students learn. However, it’s not the kind of information you find in a textbook.

Helping students transition — learning what a typical day is like in the case of the younger children, to learning more about high school in the case of teens — is becoming more common, and we are pleased to hear it.

For example, Bison Camp in the Carlisle Area School District — sponsored by the Bison Foundation — was a pre-kindergarten prep camp conducted at LeTort Elementary School and open to children from throughout the district. The main goal of the camp was to teach the children classroom etiquette that goes with a public school education.
