    Summer Bridge

    Could your child benefit from extra learning over the summer? Summer Bridge will prepare your child for maximum success next school year. Our Summer Bridge programs will be held on campus again this summer! Programming at all levels is being revamped, with elective options for middle school students. Childcare is available and bus transportation is available for eligible families. Free breakfast and lunch will be provided.

    Elementary Summer Bridge students will engage in an exciting, theme-based curriculum!  Weekly themes ranging from The Thrills and Chills of Amusement Parks to Away We Go World Travelers and much more.  Summer Bridge will connect science, reading, and mathematics concepts in fun, new ways.  Reading and math lessons will tie to the theme and focus on concepts that are most critical to success in the upcoming grade
