|Back to school "Camp Wildcat" is huge success at Phillip Sharp Middle School|
A group of sixth grade girls find their way through the halls of PSMS during the "Map Quest" segment of the evening.
The North Family Resource/Youth Services Center sponsored and hosted “Camp Wildcat” for all incoming sixth graders this year. This year’s transition program was designed along the same lines as the “Transition Quest”, presented for the Center by the Girl Scouts-Licking Valley Cluster in years past. The purpose of the program is to introduce the new students to their new school, ease their mind about changes that are soon to come, and also give them the opportunity to meet new friends in a fun, friendly environment.
This year the attendance was way above our expectations. With pre-registration, the Center was able to have an idea of expected attendance. Having 148 students to preregister, and numerous walk-ins, the total of 161 sixth grade students to attend was by far the largest “Camp Wildcat” to date. The excitement of the students along with that of the presenters and the administration made for a great day!
