SWD Counseling Center Presents...Summer Bridge 2015
The goal of the Summer Bridge Program is to provide rising ninth grade students a chance to bridge the gap from middle school to high school with a full “week” of orientation instead of a few hours, as has been the norm.  The focus will be on developing study, social, and literacy skills needed to be successful in ninth grade classes.  
Attention SWD Students,
Did you miss the mark and fail Coordinate Algebra Support, Analytic Geometry Support, CCGPS Advanced Algebra, Chemistry, Physical Science, World Literature/Composition, and/or Economics First Semester? 
WHAT CAN YOU DO NOW?  You can participate in the
                      PANTHER GRADE RECOVERY PROGRAM!
