District to offer summer school

The Cheatham County School District is excited to announce plans for its 2024 summer learning camps.

Starting Thursday, May 30, the district will offer no-cost summer learning camps for current K-12 students.

These camps will not only provide academic support but also include breakfast and lunch at no charge. Transportation will be available for elementary and middle school students as well.

The camps will feature a variety of activities including classroom learning, physical exercise, and fun experiences. Current K-8 students will have a full-day schedule, while high school students will attend a half-day schedule for credit recovery.

Students will have an opportunity to get caught up academically before the 2024-2025 school year begins.

For students in grades K-8, the camps will cover English language arts, math, academic intervention, STREAM (science, technology, reading, engineering, arts and mathematics) and physical activities.

These camps are made possible through a Tennessee initiative to aimed at supporting schools and students dealing with learning loss.
