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.
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.
Students should spend an hour a night of academic enrichment. Students will typically be assigned 30 minutes of reading and 30 minutes of homework. Our goal is to prepare 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:
We hope you make long-lasting friendships while at Breakthrough. Romantic relationships, however, should be expressed elsewhere.
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.
