Hello DMS Families and Staff,
Summer School for Incoming 9th Grade Students
8th Graders, as they are planning to promote to 9th Grade, can get a jump-start on their high school freshman year with summer enrichment classes sponsored by the Temecula Education Foundation (TEF).
TEF has for-credit classes that freshmen might be interested in (Spanish 1, ASL 1 and, depending on math skills, Geometry) but also several non-credit prep classes.
The Algebra I Boot Camp, Writing Workshop, and Academic Success (Study Skills) preparatory classes are intended to help students make a successful transition to high school. Last year was our first year to offer the Algebra I Boot Camp, and it was a hit – lots of positive feedback from parents and students.
Registration for the fee-based TEF Summer High School 2015 will open at 8 AM on May 1 and close at midnight on June 1.
Students must not miss more than one day during the four-week (June 15-July 10) period to receive high school credits.
There is NO refund for any class after June 5.
All proposed classes are subject to change, based on teacher availability and student enrollment.
This is our sixth year of sponsoring enrichment classes for high school students.
Location for TEF Summer High School rotates; this year, it will be held at Chaparral High School.
Since DMS is a feeder middle school to CHS, it’s a great opportunity for incoming freshmen to attend a class AND learn to navigate their high school campus.
The flyer with more information is in the PeachJar section on the right-side of this page.
If you have questions about registration or TEF Summer High School, more info may be found at www.tvfee.org.
