Elementary Summer Program
The goals of the Elementary Summer Program are to provide summer instruction and intervention in reading and mathematics, and an enhancement of science and social justice concepts for students currently in grades K-5.
In addition to the academic component from 8 a.m.-12:30 p.m., the program provides enrichment from 12:30-4:30 p.m. that enhances the academic work through art, music, drama, science, physical activities and technology. Classes will also work with student support staff to continue to develop their social-emotional learning skills.
Any student currently in grades K-5 is eligible to apply for the program.
Please note that submitting an application does not guarantee acceptance, although we anticipate that most families applying will be able to participate.
In the event that we receive more applications than there are spaces, preference will be given to students identified by building principals based on certain academic factors.

The academic morning portion of the program will be staffed by district teachers. The afternoon enrichment portion of the program is operated by either the Boys and Girls Club or the YMCA. Whether your child participates in the Boys and Girls Club or YMCA program will be primarily determined by their home school, but please note that both enrichment programs offer the same content.
All in-person families are eligible for transportation to and from the program. When completing the application, simply indicate your transportation preference, and select one of the many corner stops throughout the city.
Breakfast, lunch and snack are provided each day as part of the program.
