Summer Adventure Program

When: June 7-25, 2021

Where: All Elementary and Middle Schools (limited enrollment)

Overview & Purpose

The Summer School Learning Adventure Program is designed to provide students with an in-person learning experience that provides:

  • Time for students to reconnect, reflect, and ready themselves for new learning
  • An enriched project-based learning experience to practice academic skills needed for new learning
  • A safe place with proven protocols for health and safety 

Limited Capacity Enrollment (100-150 per school)

  • The 2021 MSD of Pike Township Summer Learning Program will be designed to provide students with an opportunity to accelerate learning due to the loss of in-person instructional time during COVID-19. 
  • To maintain health and safety protocols, in-person learning will be provided at each elementary and middle school.  
  • Due to limited enrollment capacity, each school will be sending out invitations based on student academic need and engagement during the 2020-2021 school year.
  • Federal funding provided to schools must address student academic skills and the acceleration of learning; however, student enrichment activities will be embedded within each school program.  

School Day

  • Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
  • Free breakfast and lunch served by Chartwells Dining Services
  • Free school bus transportation provided daily.

Curriculum

  • Project-based learning (PBL) units based on grade-level academic standards
  • PBL is a form of teaching and learning in which students gain knowledge and skills through investigation and engagement with an authentic question, challenge, or problem.
  • Enrichment activities will be embedded throughout the program.
