We are pleased to announce the return of a wonderful learning opportunity for students entering Kindergarten through Grade 8 this summer called the STAR Summer Enrichment Program. The funding will be provided by the American Rescue Plan (ARP) grant-in-aid awarded to the district, which enables us to bring this program to our families for free until the funds are exhausted. Students in the STAR Summer Enrichment Program will engage in inquiry-based, student-centered activities in the areas of English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Technology and Coding, to name a few. Time for physical activity will be built in so that students will be exercising their bodies as well as their minds.
The program is open to all students and any family can register their current Grade Pre-K through Grade 7, however some students may be contacted directly by the building principals to participate based on their academic progress this past year. Families may use this Google Form link or the QR code below to register your child for the free STAR Summer Enrichment Program: https://forms.gle/Jc2K5yKbKVMw5WUh6.
The free STAR Summer Enrichment Program will run from July 5 through August 4, 2023, from 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM. Students entering Grades K-4 will be at Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School and students entering Grades 5-8 will be at Lincoln Orens Middle School. Transportation to and from the program will not be provided by the school district. It will be the parent’s/guardian’s responsibility to transport their child to and from the school each day.
If you are also interested in your child attending the summer recreation program after the STAR Summer Enrichment Program end each day, please contact Mr. Keith Manginelli at 516-434-2605 and see the attached brochure for pricing information.
If you have any questions regarding the free STAR Summer Enrichment Program, please contact your building principal.
