We are pleased to announce a new learning opportunity for students entering Grades 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.
As the ARP funds are specifically targeted to help students who may have experienced learning loss due to the pandemic. Your child has been identified using multiple measures of student performance as a student who would benefit from this program. If you would like to register your child for the STAR Summer Enrichment Program, please use this link to complete the Google Form by May 21, 2021: https://forms.gle/32gTGRYZxsh7b4Yg9.
The free STAR Summer Enrichment Program will run from July 6 through August 6, 2021 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 have any questions regarding the free STAR Summer Enrichment Program, please contact your building principal.
