Elementary Newcomers Summer Enrichment Program

The Elementary Newcomers Summer Enrichment Program targets new English as a Second Language Students arriving to McKinney ISD from numerous backgrounds and countries. The new students may know little English, and understand few, if any, of the classroom norms that to most students are commonplace. The MISD Elementary Newcomer Summer Enrichment Program aims to ease this transition by teaching students basic English, and introducing them to school structure in a gradual, supportive way over the summer before classes begin. Students focus on academic vocabulary and language acquisition throughout the day, with content area teachers. The Title III program, however, serves as even more: it warmly welcomes the young students into their new country, gives them opportunities to make new friends, and connects them with adult mentors who truly care and are passionate about their success.  This program serves students by invitation only.
