Do you want your child to have a chance to see what Jr. High has in store for them?
The Planet 7 program will offer an opportunity for 6th graders entering 7th grade to:
· learn teamwork/leadership skills
· volunteer for their school/community
· meet new friends from other schools
· learn time management and study skills
· familiarize themselves with a new school
Other fun aspects of the program include trips to Val Lanes, Community Youth Concepts high/low ropes course, Valley View Aquatic Center, and Friday’s trip to World’s of Fun in Kansas City, MO.
All incoming 7th graders in the fall of 2020 in the West Des Moines School District are eligible to enroll in the program.
