Round up the year in CHAMP

Ideas for summer academics and fun.




What is CHAMP?

In July of 2011, the Douglas County School System, in partnership with Communities in Schools of Douglas County, completed the first renewal year of an ongoing 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant program. The program, known as CHAMP, serves students at Chestnut Log Middle School (CLMS), Turner Middle School (TMS) and Stewart Middle School (SMS). These schools have been in the 21st Century Grant Program since 2006. CHAMP is strategically designed to increase student academic skills, improve self-esteem and provide exposure to life-skills through hands-on activities. Educational experiences provided through CHAMP are specifically designed to instill in the student a lifelong love of learning. Additionally, all of the activities take place in a safe and productive environment.

Registration Requirements

Parents are required to attend an orientation session each year before students are allowed to attend the program. Parents must complete a student registration sheet during the orientation session.


Good attendance is critical for students! If students are not at school, they are missing critical instruction. Please strive for perfect attendance this year! The more days your child is in school the more they are learning. The 21st CCLC program requires students to attend a minimum of 2.5 hours per day.

Withdrawal Requirements

If a student is changing schools and needs to withdraw from the program, a written request or phone call from parents to the Site Coordinator at school is required.
