Dear Students and Parents:
I am very excited to inform you that we will host a Fun Camp for Academics at both Chickamauga Elementary School and Gordon Lee Middle School this summer. The purpose of each free camp is to provide fun activities that will also serve to strengthen academic skills. With COVID-19, early closing of school last year, and students having to quarantine, many students can benefit from the Fun Camps. The camps will be held four days a week, and all students are welcome to attend. Some students at each school, who have been identified as needing extra assistance, will receive an invitation from the school in the near future.
The elementary program will last 4 weeks and will have fun activities, guest speakers, and a field trip. The middle school program will last 3 weeks and have themed activities such as space, local history, and sports.
I encourage you to consider attending Fun Camp whenever you can. You do not have to commit to attending every day, but if you feel you will attend even a few days, please let the school know. Any time you spend at Fun Camp will help you—even if you are only able to come for one day a week. In order for the school to properly plan for the camp, it is important for you to let the school know if you are planning to attend (even one day a week) as soon as possible.
The Middle School Fun Camp for Academics is not to be confused with the CREDIT RECOVERY SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAM. The credit recovery program will be held as usual and must be attended if students need to earn credit in order to be promoted to the next grade level.
Schedules for Fun Camp:
June 7 - July 1
June 7 - June 24
I hope you will be able to take advantage of these free programs.
Superintendent, Chickamauga City Schools
