Thoreau Excellence In Action 2021

Back by popular demand is the Thoreau Excellence in Action summer program! This program has been designed by Thoreau staff members to provide students with essential background knowledge and skills that will help them have a successful transition to middle school. This year we will be running two day sessions rather then week long sessions.  As of June 4th FCPS students attending summer activities in FCPS schools will still be required to wear a mask. If anything changes in July we will let you know. 

  • Dates:  Please only sign up for one session! 
    • Session 1 for rising 7th graders: Tuesday, July 13th and Wednesday, July 14th (Full)
    • Session 2 for rising 7th graders: Thursday, July 15th and Friday, July 16th
    • Session 3 for rising 7th graders: Tuesday, July 27th and Wednesday July 28th (Full)
    • Session 4 for rising 7th or 8th graders: Thursday, July 29th and Friday, July 30th
  • Time- The program will run from 9am-12pm each day at Thoreau Middle School. 

  • How to Register:  Fill out this Excellence in Action Google Form.  

  • Cost: The cost of the program is $45.  This payment will cover the instructional expenses plus a Thoreau t-shirt. Payment can be made through the FCPS online payment site, "My School Bucks" in the "School Store" section of your child's elementary school site or if your child is a rising 8th grader, in the Thoreau My School Bucks School Store. If you are new to FCPS you may pay by check.  Please make checks payable to Thoreau Middle School and send by mail to the school or you may drop off the check in the front office.  Because of covid restrictions we will not be able to provide lunch this year. 

  • Transportation: Parents will need to arrange transportation to and from Thoreau. Carpooling, walking, or biking is highly encouraged.

  • Attendance: Students are expected to attend both days of the program.  Partial enrollment or payments are not accepted.  

You will receive a confirmation email within three weeks once your registration and payment are processed.  In addition, a more detailed email will be sent one week prior to the session start date.

Space for the program is limited so please register ASAP.  Students will be placed on a "first come, first served" basis.
