Sherwood Middle School in Oregon helped incoming sixth-graders learn the ropes during the two-week Sherwood Summer Institute, where they took academic courses and learned about middle-school life. As part of the program, female students participated in a Girls Inc. course to empower them and prepare them for issues typical of this time, and a Moving to Middle School class taught students how to work lockers through activities where they raced to open 20 lockers.
