Breakthrough Central Texas Programs

BREAKTHROUGH IN MANOR ISD SUMMER PROGRAM IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Breakthrough's Program is a long term commitment (12 years) where students enroll in the Spring semester before their 6th grade year. 

 Attendance/ Punctuality:

Our expectation Is that students are present and on time to every Breakthrough activity, except in case of illness or emergency. Since attendance is fundamental to fostering a strong Breakthrough community, a pattern of absences may lead to a parent conference and/or dismissal from our program.

 Homework:

Students should spend an hour a night of academic enrichment. Students will typically be assigned 30 minutes of reading and 30 minute of homework. Our goal is to pre- pare Breakthrough students for the rigorous demands of higher education. A student with a pattern of missing homework will have opportunities during the day to complete assignments. Those opportunities may include a working lunch or time during other non-academic time. Homework and other academic habits will be discussed during family conferences.

 Dress for respect:

Please dress comfortably and appropriately. The following kinds of clothing or accessories are not acceptable:

x    Items that advertise drugs, alcohol, tobacco, sex, or other inappropriate messages.

x    Items that do not appropriately cover the wearer’s body (for example, cropped shirts, tank tops, muscle shirts, short shorts and short skirts.) Expensive accessories like ipods, cell phones, video games, or other such items are not allowed.  Since they are both distracting and are at risk getting lost or stolen, we ask that they remain left at home or turned off and in student  backpacks at all times.

 Relationships:

We hope you make long-lasting friendships while at Breakthrough. Romantic relationships, however, should be expressed elsewhere.

 Eating healthily:

Breakthrough provides breakfast and lunch, and snacks while at the program. Students are not permitted to bring any outside food, snacks, or drink including sodas, candy, gum, chips, etc.

INFORMACION IMPORTANTE DEL PROGRAMA DEL VERANO

Asistencia/Puntualidad:

Nuestra expectativa es que los estudiantes estén presentes y sean puntuales a cada actividad de Breakthrough, excepto en el caso de enfermedad o una emergencia. Como asistencia es fundamental en crear una comunidad unida de Breakthrough, ausencias resultarán en una conferencia con los padres o/y el expulso del programa.

Tarea:

Espera alrededor de una horas de tarea cada día durante el verano, de lunes a viernes. En Breakthrough, nuestros maestros esperan que cada estudiante entrega en sus ta- reas cuando debido. Si no acaban la tarea en tiempo, otro tiempo seria hecho para hacerlo. En ejemplo,  tiempo de trabajar durante el almuerzo o otra tiempo sin académicos.

Vestir para respecto:

Breakthrough no es una pasarela de moda, es un programa académico serio. Viste cómodo y apropiadamente. Los siguientes tipos de vestuario o accesorios no son aceptables:

x    Prendas o artículos que anuncien drogas, alcohol, tabaco, sexo, o cualquier otro mensaje inapropiado

x    Prendas o artículos que no cubran apropiadamente el cuerpo (por ejemplo, tops-tanque, pantalones demasiado cortos, faldas cortísimas)

Desaconsejamos enérgicamente traer accesorios caros como iPod, teléfonos celulares, videojuegos o artículos de valor. Ya que distraen y pueden ser robados o se pueden perder, pedimos que se dejen en casa o que se apaguen y se guarden en las mochilas en todo momento.

Relaciones:

Esperamos que hagas amistades duraderas mientras estés en el programa. Pero, las relaciones de índole romántica deben ser expresadas en otro lugar.

Alimentación sana:

Breakthrough provee comidas y botanas mientras te encuentres en el programa. La comida chatarra (sodas, caramelos, chicle, patatas de bolsa, etc.) no está permitidas.
