The district will offer a summer school program for students in grades K-4. The program is intended to mitigate learning loss by providing additional instruction in literacy and math skills. The curriculum will focus on early literacy skills through the teaching of phonological awareness, letter sound correspondence, sight words and comprehension. In addition the program will have a math component which will address K-4 math computation skills, math fluency, and math critical thinking. The Elementary School Summer Program, will also infuse the visual and performing arts via art and music lessons, physical education classes, and technology classes. 50 minutes of instruction will be dedicated to Reading and Math instruction respectively. As part of the program, we also want to engage students by infusing the visual and performing arts via art and music lessons which will alternate with physical education classes. The program will help students advance in the core academic areas while students have FUN!
