Summer School 2021

We are thrilled to announce our Summer School plans for the summer of 2021. Thank you to those who participated in the interest survey that was sent previously. Based on that data, we were able to be more detailed in our planning. Throughout this school year, we have done our best to provide a variety of options to parents so that they could make decisions that they felt were in the best interest of their students and families. We are approaching summer school in the same way. 

Please read about this summer's offerings below. Contact our curriculum office at 517.541.5107 for more information or to register.

For this in-person experience, the focus will be on STEM learning. Teachers will use the Camp Invention program for grades DK-6 and the Invention Project program for grades 7 and 8. For more information about both of these programs, CLICK HERE. Students will have ELA and Math learning experiences that connect to the Camp Invention and Invention Project experiences. Other experiences built into the schedule include time for Social-Emotional learning, physical education, recess, and a variety of enrichment opportunities.  For this in person experience, behavioral expectations will be in line with expectations for that student’s grade level.  For more information about Behavioral Expectations and student handbooks, please visit your school’s website.

GRASP

Start/End Dates Schedule Mask Required Location Busing Provided?
6/18 - 8/13 Flexible No Home Not Needed

Description: 

GRASP is a correspondence program for grades K through 8 which helps students maintain reading and math skills while they are on summer break. For more detailed information about GRASP, click HERE to view a tri-fold brochure with important information. Children receive a packet of materials with a booklet containing 9 lessons. It takes approximately one hour to complete each lesson. Students submit one lesson a week starting June 18th or work at their own pace, as long as they submit all lessons before August 13th. They mail the lessons to GRASP in provided envelopes where they are scored and returned to the children with comments. We also have an on-line version of GRASP for students in 4th to 8th Grade. These students will receive feedback immediately. Children successfully completing at least 7 lessons with 70% accuracy are awarded a certificate. Those successfully completing all 9 lessons with 70% accuracy receive a medal! Certificates and medals will be distributed by your school. If you are interested in this opportunity, we ask that you sign up by clicking THIS LINK.

The Kids Read Now program provides students with books throughout their summer. Books will be mailed to all students in grades DK-5.  Along with the books, there will be activities for parents to complete with students related to their books. The goal of this program is to provide students and families with engaging reading opportunities all summer long. This is a free support for all families.

Using the E2020 program, this is an onsite or online opportunity for high school students with credit deficiencies. We hope this program will allow students who currently have credit deficiencies to get caught up with their credits so they are able to graduate on time.

This program is an on-site program where students interested in education as a career have the opportunity to learn how to teach. Students will be working with Aaron Balowski, a high school math teacher, to learn how to teach while also learning STEM content. This program culminates in the fall with these high school students going to our middle school and upper elementary and teaching lessons to some of our younger students.
