Summer Jumpstart to Success (Grades 1-5)

Dear DoDEA Pacific West Families,

DoDEA Pacific is offering registered students who will be completing Grades 1-5 this school year an exciting summer learning experience, Jumpstart to Success, from June 15 through July 2, 2021. This program is an in-person, standards-based academic opportunity for students to get a “jumpstart” into next school year, preparing them to enter the next grade level with confidence as they improve their mathematics and literacy skills.

DoDEA Pacific welcomes interested families to sign their child up for the program. However, due to enrollment capacities and staffing configurations, limited slots are available. Admission into the program will therefore be on a first come, first serve basis.
The following information about the program will help you determine if this is a good fit for your child:

The DoDEA Pacific summer program:
• is designed for students who need to build upon their mathematics and literacy skills to prepare them for the next grade level.
• does not replace the special education summer compensatory program options that are already available for students and is not intended for students who are in advanced placement programs.
• provides families with a choice of a full day program consisting of a half-day host nation program, half day academic program (mathematics and literacy), and free lunch OR
families may choose a half day program, selecting from host nation or the academic program option. (Please note that only the half-day academic option is available for families in Guam as the host nation program will not be available in Guam).
• does not provide transportation; it is each family’s responsibility to arrange transportation to and from the school.
• may consist of multi-age configurations depending on enrollment and staffing.
• will continue to implement COVID-19 mitigation procedures.
• will have an administrator on site at each location for any questions or concerns.
• a.m. session: 8 a.m.-11:00 a.m./p.m. session: 12:00-3:00.
• On-site lunch supervision will only be provided for students attending both the a.m. and p.m. sessions.

If you are interested in enrolling your child, please navigate to to register by May 14, 2021. You will be notified by May 28, 2021, on the status of your child’s enrollment, as well as the specific location where he/she will attend the program.

Thank you for your interest in the Jumpstart to Success Summer Program. We look forward to supporting your student. Please contact your school administrator with any additional questions or concerns.
