The University of South Florida St. Petersburg College of Education will continue its Prep for Middle School Success Program this year.
The program is a partnership with Pinellas County Schools and is funded by the Juvenile Welfare Board. Over the summer, USFSP COE hosted rising fifth grade students from six different schools at a Leadership Summer Camp. During this current school year, USFSP COE staff and students will be again offering services to fifth grade students at Campbell Park, Fairmount Park, Lakewood, Lealman Avenue, Midtown Academy and Pinellas Park Elementary schools. The program focuses on a leadership club, mentoring and tutoring, field trips and experiential learning, as well as Soccer, Teambuilding, Attitude, Respect and Self-Awareness, or S.T.A.R.S. Club, an afterschool enrichment program.
