Summer is a great break from school but not a great break from learning. That’s why Park City School District is excited to offer Summer School again this year for students in grades 1-8, starting June 18. Online registration is now open.
This is the first summer the district is offer sessions for students going in to grades 7 and 8. Secondary Summer School will be based on project learning with field trips to the Egyptian Theater, and enjoying activities such as yoga, hiking, paddle boarding, street art, break dancing, and art. Students will also take part in service projects.
The secondary Summer School, held at Treasure Mountain Junior High, runs June 18-July 12, Monday through Thursday. The elementary Summer School, held at McPolin Elementary, runs June 18-July 26, Monday through Thursday. Cost is $100 and includes breakfast and lunch.
Summer School provides social, cultural and academic benefits, according to Todd Klarich, director of Community Education for PCSD. “We provide a safe, healthy and engaging environment for all students to reduce the impact of the summer slide,” he said. “And we provide opportunities for students to build self esteem, independence, and problem-solving skills while participating in hands-on activities in our community.”
