SUMMER READING PROGRAM
The district provides a summer playground program for all resident children from kindergarten through eighth grade. The program is conducted weekdays from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Playground programs are offered at two elementary schools each summer and are staffed by teachers and college and high school students. Activities include trips, sports and an arts and crafts program. Activities are conducted outdoors, weather permitting, and indoors on rainy days. Private and parochial school resident students are invited.
The summer playground program is in full swing! Below are a few reminders for parents/guardians for a successful summer:
- On rainy days pickup and drop off will be in the gym.
- Be certain to pay for field trip events and to submit permissions
to the head counselors before the actual field trip. Payments should be
made in cash. For example, if an event is listed as $10, $9.00 is for
the event and $1.00 is the fee toward the cost of the bus.
- Be certain that campers have a snack and water every day.
REGISTRATION INFORMATION: Registration forms are available here: (English) (Español). Early registration dates, times and locations will be publicized in
