Mission to Mastery
Jefferson Parish Schools' Mission to Mastery (M2M) holiday intersession is our extended learning program designed to provide students with additional opportunities for accelerated learning during designated holiday breaks. Students will engage in accelerated ELA and math instruction with integrated science and social emotional components in a camp-like setting. Students will also participate in enrichment activities that will cater to the whole child. Your child was chosen to participate because his/her school leader felt s/he would benefit the most from additional accelerated learning time.
