District announces summer learning camps

The Cheatham County School District is excited to announce plans for its summer learning camps.

Starting Monday, June 7, the district will offer no-cost summer learning camps for current K-12 students.

Invitations to attend the camps will be sent by each school. Priority is being given to students in need of additional learning support prior to the 2021-2022 school year.

Transportation, breakfast and lunch are being provided at no charge.

Each camp will offer a mix of classroom learning, physical activity and other fun experiences, with a full-day schedule for current K-8 students and a half-day schedule for current 9-12 students.

Students will have an opportunity to get caught up academically before the 2021-2022 school year begins. In grades K-8, the camps will consist of English language arts, math, academic intervention, STREAM (science, technology, reading, engineering, arts and mathematics) and physical activity. High school students will have credit recovery with direct instruction in math and science (as needed).

The camps that are being offered by the district are funded through a Tennessee initiative to assist schools and students with learning loss related to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

All camps will be held in-person, which is required by the Tennessee Department of Education as part of the funding. 

The elementary school camps will run from 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. June 7 to July 16 (no camp on July 5). The middle school camps will operate from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 7 to July 2. The high school camps are from 8-11:30 a.m. June 7 to July 2.

Central and south cluster elementary students will attend the camps for all six weeks at Ashland City Elementary STEM Academy and Kingston Springs Elementary School, respectively. In the north cluster, all elementary students will attend the camp for three weeks at East Cheatham Elementary School and three weeks at Pleasant View Elementary School.

The middle and high school camps will be held at Cheatham Middle School, Harpeth Middle School and Sycamore Middle School.

** Note **

The camps are for students who are working on grade-level standards. Students who are not working on grade-level standards will have the option of ESY (Extended School Year) and that is a team decision based on each student's IEP. If you have questions about ESY, contact your child's teacher or our Special Education Department.
