What Is College for Kids and Teens? College for Kids and Teens (CFK/CFT), through the School of Continuing Education (SCE), is a hands-on enrichment program for students entering grades K5-12 who have high academic potential, motivation and talent. Established in 1980, the program consists of one- and two-week classes in Creative Arts, Humanities/ Social Sciences, Languages & Cultures, Math & Computers, and Science. Taught by UW system faculty or highly qualified and experienced instructors, all programs provide an “academic edge,” and class sizes are limited to 16 students unless otherwise noted. When and Where? Classes are held Mon-Fri, June 10-Aug 9 on the UWM campus, unless otherwise noted. Specific class dates/times are included in course descriptions.

Please Note • Kindergartners must be five years old by June 10, 2019, and must have prior five-days-a-week school experience to participate in our program. This rule will be strictly enforced. Children who do not meet this requirement will be subject to immediate withdrawal without a refund given. • When registering for CFK and CFT, use next year’s grade level.

Registration Policy Once your child or teen is registered, there are no refunds or transfers. Refunds are made only for classes canceled by CFK/CFT.

• Some classes are designed for a broader range of students (e.g., grades 6-12), and others are more specifically targeted – look for grade levels listed next to each program number.

How Do I Register? Registration opens Jan 14, 2019 at 10am. Call or fax in your registration, or go online to uwm.edu/sce/kids to enroll.

• Select courses have a $5-25 computer lab or material fee included in the price.

(Note: Mailed registrations add several days to the registration process and lessen the likelihood of availability in your desired class.) Confirmation of Registration Your receipt and parental consent forms will be emailed to you for completion and return. If you do not provide an email address, you will receive them by mail. You may also visit uwm.edu/sce/kids to download consent forms right away. All participants are encouraged to have their own health insurance, as only limited secondary accident insurance is provided by the University. Please note: Confirmation dates reflect the entire summer program – June 10-Aug 9. Please refer to the catalog or website for specific dates and times of your registered classes.

2

Classes that do not reach sufficient enrollment by May 6th will be cancelled. Please register before this date to ensure classes run.

• For chemistry classes, closed-toe shoes must be worn at all times; no flip-flops or sandals. • For dance and theater classes, students must bring another pair of shoes to change into in order to participate. Please make sure your child brings appropriate shoes to class each day; no flip-flops or sandals.

Students enrolled in back-to-back classes or before/after care will be chaperoned to their next destination. No extended supervision (longer than the 30 minutes between consecutive class times) is available between 9am and 4pm. • Please have your child bring a copy of this schedule to class each day so we can make sure they are always in the right place.

Class Descriptions Classes are organized by grade level as well as by subject area. Courses that are offered for multiple grade levels are only listed once. The curriculum for these courses increases in complexity for each grade level.

Before and After Care To make things easier for students and parents, we offer supervised care at the Union Terrace before and after the program day, for a minimal charge. Chaperoning children to or from class is included in the fee. Come early or stay late. You must sign up for the full week. •B  efore Care: 7:30-9am – $30/week or $50/two-week session •A  fter Care: 4-5:30pm – $30/week or $50/two-week session

THE UWM WRITING PROJECT SPECIAL PROGRAM Special Programs

The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Writing Project (UWMWP) is an active chapter of the National Writing Project (NWP). Founded in 1974, NWP’s ongoing mission is to provide writing teachers resources and training in order to cultivate new methods of teaching, research on teaching, and a passionately professional writing community. Teacher-Consultants (TCs) participate in an accredited, graduate-level Summer Institute, as well as smaller in-services throughout the year. What makes TCs unique is their pledge and dedication to writing. This passion includes creating news ways to inspire writers of all ages and a personal commitment to their own writing practices. College for Kids/Teens’ (CFK/T) partnership with the UWMWP allows student writers an opportunity for students to work with three professionally and academically trained TCs per class! These instructors utilize materials from the NWP to create a supportive and engaged writing community, which provides students with a week of invigorating writing experience. Furthermore, both CFK/T and the UWMWP share the goal of community building. So the TCs selected to work each week are passionate writers from the Metro Milwaukee community.

The UWM Writing Project – Introductory Teen Writing Academy

The UWM Writing Project – Young Writers’ Academy

Sponsored by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Writing Project, this writing class is designed specifically for teen students who are interested in practicing writing across three genres: Fiction, Poetry, and Non-Fiction/Essay. These classes are facilitated by experienced writers and teachers—trained Teacher-Consultants with the UWM Writing Project—who introduce writing activities that are fun, helpful and inspiring to the imagination.

Back by popular demand, this University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Writing Project’s (UWMWP) camp is for aspiring writers who are entering grade. 6-8. During the camp, we meet each day in writing groups. This camp is facilitated by Teacher-Consultants (TCs), experienced writers and teachers who are involved in the UWMWP—and these TCs have a common goal of inspiring the imaginations and composition skills of young writers! We write daily in a creative, supportive environment. While writers of all abilities are welcome, we focus on some introductory concepts as well as more nuanced, stylistic skills.

During the Introductory Teen Writing Academy, student writers: • Explore concepts from three genres, including short fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction/essay • Choose two genres and produce polished writing pieces • Learn writing techniques used by professional writers • Receive individual instruction and response in small groups • Cultivate an initial writing process: brainstorming, free writing, drafting and revising • Celebrate writing with a culminating community event designed to share writing with parents, teachers and peers Since this is a writing academy sponsored by the UWM Writing Project, we utilize a strong curriculum anchored by low teacher-to-student ratios (one instructor for every five or six students). This allows us the opportunity to know writers as individuals and foster a stronger writing community. This camp is open to all students, grades 9-12, who are interested in writing, even if they have not participated in other writing programs (some background in writing is welcomed and encouraged but not mandatory). Students can bring previous work, but will spend the week focusing on new writing projects that fit within our three genres. $229 Megan Sampson 8410-0481, June 24-28, 9am-1:30pm Gr. 9-12, Discovery Camp 1 Note: There is a 30-minute, supervised lunch break every day. Please make sure students bring a bagged lunch or, if they have permission to leave unattended, they may bring money to purchase lunch in the student union.

During the Young Writers’ Academy, student writers: • Explore a variety of genres, including poetry, short fiction, essay/nonfiction writing and more • Receive individual instruction and feedback in small groups from UWMWP TCs • Learn introductory and foundational writing techniques used by professional writers • Meet and share writing with young writers from all around the state and country • Engage in the entire writing process: brainstorming, drafting, revising and editing Because this writing academy is sponsored by the UWMWP, we utilize a strong curriculum anchored by low teacher-to-student ratios (one instructor for every five or six students). This provides us the opportunity to build an authentic rapport with student writers, which ultimately allows us to foster a stronger writing community. The Young Writers’ Academy culminates in a celebration of writing at the end of the week, where students are encouraged to share their favorite pieces! New and returning participants are welcomed to attend! $229 Megan Sampson 8410-0083, July 15-19, 9am-1:30pm Gr. 6-8, Discovery Camp 2 Note: There is a 30-minute, supervised lunch break every day.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION Skip Ahead! Advanced check-in: May 31-June 7, 9am-4pm. Avoid the long lines and get acquainted with campus early – stop by our office located in the Union, room W179. Please call 414-227-3360 (before May 31) or 414-940-1896 (after May 31) for other questions.

Check-In Check in at the Union Terrace on your child’s first day. Here, we will make sure you’ve filled out all the proper paperwork, and then students will receive their CFK/CFT drawstring backpacks and wristbands. It is helpful to bring your confirmation receipt with you on the first day. Please note: You only need to do this one time during the summer on your first day of your first class. Please arrive 15-30 minutes before your class start time in order to get checked in and start class on time. If a large number of students arrive right before class start time to check in, there will be a significant delay in getting students to their class and receiving the full instruction.

Age Requirement Kindergartners must be five years old by June 10, and must have prior five-days-a-week school experience to participate in our program. This rule will be strictly enforced and children who do not meet this requirement will be subject to immediate withdrawal with no refund given.

Pick Up & Drop Off Pick up and drop off are at the Union Circle, 2200 E. Kenwood Blvd., or inside the Union Terrace (SW corner on the ground floor). Instructors will bring their students to the Union Terrace at the end of class time. You must pick up your child within 15 minutes (e.g., if class ends at 4pm, pick up must be no later than 4:15pm). Students will be allowed to wait for their ride either inside the Union Terrace or outside at the circle drive. Please make sure your child knows where they are meeting you. You will be charged $10 for every 15 minutes past the pick up time (e.g., 4:16-4:31pm would be $10; 4:32-4:47pm would be $20, and so on). If your child is not picked up within one hour, CFK/CFT will contact the UWM police. Your child will not be allowed to return to classes until the fee has been paid. Only students who have a signed parental release form granting them permission to leave unattended will be able to leave without an adult. If your child is to go home on their own, make sure you sign that form. These students will be given orange wristbands to wear throughout the program.

If you need to pick up your child early or drop them off late, you will need to go directly to the classroom. Please do not drop off children at the Union if you are running late. If you do not see a staff member standing outside the Union, students and instructors have already left, and you will need to take your child to his/her classroom. If you do not know the classroom location, please call our office at 414-940-1896 or visit the Union information desk located on the ground floor.

Wristbands

Other Important Information If you leave your car unattended in the Union circle drive, you will be ticketed by campus police and there is nothing CFK/CFT can do about it! A parking ramp is available just to the east of the driveway. Street parking is also available. If students are enrolled in back-to-back classes, they will be supervised in the Union Terrace Room, unless you have given them permission to be unattended.

Wristbands are given out on the first day of a session and are to be worn every day. If your child is enrolled in more than one session, he/ she can receive a new band at the beginning of each session. Please bring the old wristband back in order to get a new one. It is your responsibility to make sure your child wears the wristband every day. The colors indicate to our staff what privileges each child has, such as leaving campus unattended or not being included in pictures. Children are not allowed to participate in class unless they are wearing a wristband to verify that they are enrolled.

Scholarships

The cost to replace the wristbands is $20 for the orange and $3 for all others. (If you need to take it off for any reason, please bring it back, and it will be replaced for free.)

If you qualify for either of these scholarships, please call for an application, contact your school or download forms at uwm.edu/sce/kids. Due to the high number of requests, only those receiving scholarships are notified by email. Scholarships are first come, first served; please apply as soon as possible since most years we have reached our maximum number to award by early April.

Meals Lunch and snacks are not included. Please provide your child with a bag lunch and/or snack each day. Only students that have permission to leave unattended (orange wristband) will be able to purchase food on campus.

Needs-Based: To be eligible for a limited number of needs-based scholarships, student must be entering grades K5-5 and be eligible for the free or reduced lunch program. Needs-based recipients will be notified by phone the 1st week of May. DPI Pre-College Scholarship Program: Applicants must be going into 6th grade or above, have a 2.5 grade point average in core courses, and be eligible for the free or reduced lunch program.

Drawstring Backpacks

Sponsor a Student

All participants will receive a FREE CFK/CFT drawstring backpack – handed out at check-in.

With a $250 donation, you can sponsor a child in need to attend CFK for one week in the summer. In fact, any amount of contribution throughout the year is greatly appreciated. Would you consider making a pledge to help a deserving child attend classes during the 2019 summer session? On behalf of our students, we extend a heartfelt thank you for your generosity and gift of education.

What Not to Bring Please do not bring games, toys, trading cards, electronic devices and other similar materials to classes, unless the instructor has requested you to do so. CFK/CFT is not responsible for lost, broken or missing items.

Disciplinary Information Disruptive students are taken to the CFK/CFT office and their parents are notified. Continued disruption results in removal from the program.

To learn more about the ways in which you can give financial support, contact: Liza Longhini Development Director 414-227-3252 lizal@uwm.edu

Children With Special Concerns If your child has special needs or requires medication during class, please contact us before enrolling to fill out additional paperwork. This will ensure that we can address all of your concerns.
