Summer Adventures Online

Dear Families!

I hope this email finds you well. Finally! The virtual options for Summer Academics and Summer Adventures are now open for registration!

I have worked to revise many of our Summer Adventures programs, as well as offer new vendors we partnered with this Spring during our Virtual After School Adventures program. Many of the topics we are offering virtually include, computer and technology classes with Luke Johnson, Chess with Roger LaFlair, a wide range of art programs from Handworks Studio, classes in academics to stimulate your child's intellect as well as work to maintain skills, academic class options include, language, writing, math, literature and more, classes in theater and ballet can bring new opportunity for self-expression!

There are classes for all ages and interests, want to learn Chinese, get ready to play hockey in college? Or prepare to enter Middle School, build an app to put in the App Store, or take classes for credit and advance in school, become a better writer, reader, thinker! There is something here for you!

In planning class times, I have tried to be cognizant of the variety of screen time tolerances as well as a parent's interest in bringing some structure to their child's day. To that end, there is a wide range of options to choose from, including one hour per day to full-day options where you may register for a morning and afternoon class and a lunch break with a physical exercise component led by a PE teacher or yoga instructor for a half-hour daily.

Please take a look, read through the options, call or email me if you have any questions. We are here to help bring the fun, stimulating programs we have always sought to provide.

I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you all soon! Please feel free to reach out to me personally with questions!
