Accelerated Summer Learning Program

The Middle School EEE summer learning program is a project based environment that supports hands-on, accelerated learning during the summer months. Our program is designed to promote positive youth development, community service, life and career development, and high school transition outcomes.

What do we REALLY need to know before we become adults? This fast-paced, game-style course will give students an opportunity to learn what is NOT taught in the traditional school curriculum. This class will focus on learning real-life skills (#adulting101) that will help students grasp content that really matters outside of school. Sample topics addressed are financial literacy, cooking, car maintenance, taxes, social
etiquette, and so much more!

Summer of Code

Mr. Johnson
This is your chance to learn and practice programming and become the master of new tricks! Options could include making designs with Root robots, messaging with MicroBits, and building Sumo robots with Lego Ev3. We will use block code which is a simplified version of computer code that is easy to learn. No knowledge of programming is required. Flexibility will allow students to explore their passions and create fun projects.

This summer we will once again be building Rube Goldberg Projects during EEE summer school. Students will be divided in groups of three or four and asked to build contraptions that accomplish a task. We will incorporate Newton’s Laws of Physics as well as transfers and transformations of energy to accomplish our tasks. Students will construct their project on a wooden platform using a various assortment of supplies andmaterials like wood, plastic, metal, string, cardboard, rolling cars, marbles, ping pong balls, pulleys, levers, springs, rubber bands, bells…etc. Last summer some of the machines were quite amazing. We look forward to another innovational experience in the world of Rube Goldberg Machines.

Explorations involves three - two week learning sessions.
Bring your sneakers and your soul! This class is all about having fun and feeling healthy. You'll learn the most up-to-date dance moves while you get a great aerobic workout! Learn body rolls, arm rolls, moonwalking and more! You too can create a new dance form like Zumba, which pulls from the rhythms of merengue, salsa, cumbia, reggaetón, belly dance, flamenco, tango, and samba. Share your favorite dance moves or styles, from ballet to hip hop. Experience imaginative choreography and improve your stage presence, artistry, and musicality. Choreograph a solo or team performance. Get fit; be expressive and have fun!
Is bigger better? Not according to the Tiny House Movement where many people are choosing to live in 100-400 square foot houses to simplify, downsize, and live with less stuff. Would you like to reduce your carbon footprint using energy efficient sources and by reducing environmental consumption? Think like an architect, draft schematic designs, and use diagrams to plan space. Come learn how design principles such as scale, proportion, and balance impact construction. Try your hand at constructing a tiny scale model home and propose solutions for a simple life!
In this session, we will briefly examine some of the most influential conspiracy theories in history, dealing with some of the world's most historic events, such as the NASA Moon Landing, the assassination of John K. Kennedy, top secret government programs, and even the conspiracy behind the Loch Ness Monster before delving into our own conspiracy theory of interest.


Mrs. Barkume
Ecology is the study of the relationship between living organisms and their environment. This includes everything from how organisms interact with each other, to how they interact with their physical surroundings. In this hands-on, project based course students will explore a variety of topics including environmental conservation, wildlife populations, and even how human beings interact with their environment and each other. We will work together to conduct science experiments, spend time in nature, and gain a better understanding of the natural world around us, and our place in it. Students will also work with high school mentors who will help them learn to think like scientists. The end goal is to create a community of conservation minded students who understand the importance of healthy ecosystems.
