  • Adventure Awaits

    This summer, elementary students are invited to participate in an online enrichment opportunity to keep learning happening and their minds engaged! The theme is “Adventure Awaits!” Students and their families will embark on a new adventure each week, beginning June 15 through July 9, including the exploration of outer space, diving deep into the world’s oceans, telling stories with castles and dragons, and experiencing the Great Outdoors! These online opportunities include activities for K-2 and 3-5 students and there will be both online and downloadable options for families to utilize at home.

     

    To support the students’ adventures, materials packs will be available at each school while supplies last. These packs will include school supplies and household items that can be used to complete their hands-on projects. More information regarding the material pack distribution at school sites coming soon.

     

    The adventure awaits our students on the Community Reads! website through a special link. Just look for the BOOK!
