Could your child benefit from extra learning opportunities over the summer?
Registration for Summer Bridge is underway. Summer Bridge is especially important for students who are not performing on grade level or need additional help to stay on track. Summer Bridge provides engaging activities and focused instruction to prepare students for maximum success. Most Summer Bridge programs will run Monday through Thursday from June 6 to July 13. Register and find the latest information at www.pcsb.org/summerbridge. Contact the school for additional info or help with the registration process.
Please note: Letters were sent out to families explaining some students' need for this program. Letters were also sent to students who, academically, are meeting and/or exceeding expectations. The reason for this was that we want all students to have the opportunity to stop the summer slide and continue their learning over the summer. Please contact us with any questions.
