Bounce Back to School - Summer School

posted Mar 13, 2017, 12:02 PM by Michael Doud   [ updated Mar 14, 2017, 6:38 AM ]

Fill out online form by April 1, 2017

Your child’s academic development is vital to his/her future successes. Identifying the areas that need improvement and then providing that student with additional learning experiences is one of many opportunities that our district directs time and resources toward. 

“Bounce Back to School” will give K-6 students who were recommended by their teacher the opportunity to come to school up to an hour and a half each day to brush up on reading and math skills that may have gotten a little “rusty” over the long summer break. We believe that this approach will help our students get back into the swing of school and make the transition to a new grade easier. We also believe that giving students this academic boost before school starts will help them be more prepared for the learning experiences they will have early in the school year. 

Classes will run from July 17th-August 4th in the morning. Transportation must be provided by the parent.  If your child is recommended to take summer school, please consider the extra opportunity that the student is receiving. Space is limited so students with the highest recommendation from their teacher will be given first opportunity.

If your child was recommended please either return the registration form or complete the online form. Please do not return the form with your child to school, either complete the online form or use the US Post Office. If you register your child for summer school, you will receive a letter in May or June with the exact times that your child is to attend. 

If there are any questions concerning your child’s recommendation, contact your teacher. Summer School questions, contact Mike Welty at 584-2081 or e-mail at mwelty@usd264.org.
