Getting an edge on the 2017-2018 school year is the goal of Polk County Middle School’s (PCMS) annual Jump Start program. By helping students transition into their next grade level, PCMS helps students reduce anxieties and increase the true excitement surrounding the start of a new school year.

In its third year, the PCMS Jump Start program meets for five days, August 14-18, from 8-11:30 a.m. with the option of after school care until 2:30 p.m. Breakfast and lunch are provided. During the week, students meet the team of teachers they will have for the year and become familiar with grade level curriculum, classroom/school procedures, and how to improve study/organizational skills. Additional activities will be led by School Resource Officer Brad Hicks and Prevention Coordinator Dr. Basil Savitsky.

Enrollment for Jump Start is completely free however, limited spaces are available. To register, contact the school at 828-894-2215 or email Nikki Honeycutt at nhoneycutt@polkschools.org.
