Location: Edward J. Patten & Rose M. Lopez Elementary Schools
Curriculum Focus: English Language Arts, Math, and Social Emotional Learning
Program will be open for General Education students, Bilingual, Dual Language and Special Education students not attending the ESY program
Student Selection Criteria: Students who need summer support in the areas of language arts, math and social emotional learning at the PreK 4 level. Priority will be given to students who are struggling academically.
The district will offer an on-site summer school program for students in PreK-4 who are transitioning to kindergarten in September 2022. The program is intended to support student achievement by providing instruction in literacy, math, and social emotional skills. Students who are struggling the most in their academics will be invited to attend the program. The curriculum will focus on early literacy and mathematics skills through the teaching of letter identification, letter sound correspondence, sight words, identification of numbers, counting up to at least 20, identification of shapes, and identification of colors. The curriculum will also be based on studies or themes to integrate all content areas. As part of the program, we also want to engage students by infusing social emotional pieces to the day. Parents and students will have access to a non-traditional psychiatrist who will rotate through classes, identify students in need and provide parent workshops regarding kindergarten readiness information.
