7th Grade Orientation in Big Lake
@ Hennepin County Library
DescriptionFrom August 14 to September 2, students entering 7th grade at Franklin and Lincoln Junior High Schools participated in an orientation at Camp Wells near Big Lake, MN. The camp included regular camp activities like swimming, boating, and crafts, but also included sessions about school rules, extracurricular activities, and classes they'd be taking during the school year, and introduced kids to teachers in an informal atmosphere. The camp was part of the school's summer Urban Area Secondary Program, which was aimed at giving educationally and economically deprived children a better chance to succeed in school.
