Summer Programs

Shifting Gears

Wednesday, August 7 - AM Session Only

Thursday, August 8 – AM and PM Session

Shifting Gears is a transition program for all rising 7th grade students at Kilmer Middle School. At Shifting Gears, students will get to meet students from other elementary schools, become comfortable with Kilmer’s campus, and learn what it’s like to be a middle school student. Through fun activities and informative lessons, the program will focus on helping students with the transition to middle school and alleviate concerns students may have. There are three half day Shifting Gears sessions available this summer. Students can only attend one session. To sign up, please fill out this form. If a session no longer appears as an option on the form, than it has already reached capacity.
