Summer of Discovery

  • Through Summer of Discovery learning experiences, students will develop key competencies, mindsets, and conceptual understandings essential for success in school. These will be cross-curricular, with many cross-grade levels, and all academic and enrichment experiences will contribute to students’ mastery of these.

    The goal of an equity-driven summer learning model is to ensure that all students have access to the same quality of instruction. Equity-driven summer learning models are essential in providing access to quality education for all students and closing the achievement gap. These models focus on providing access to high-quality learning experiences that are engaging and supportive, allowing students to continue their learning during the summer months. They also provide access to enrichment activities and courses that focus on literacy, mathematics, and science, as well as social-emotional learning. These activities will help students become more independent learners and better prepare them for the upcoming school year. Our equity-driven summer learning models also include field trips, hands-on activities, and outdoor exploration that can help build students’ skills and knowledge base.

    MISSION
    Our mission is to provide culturally relevant opportunities that will support our scholars in becoming productive members of their communities who can thrive in an ever-changing world. The Expanded Learning Department is dedicated to the growth and development of scholars by providing high-quality, innovative, and engaging educational experiences beyond the school day. Scholars will learn and explore their passions in safe and nurturing environments, empowering them to become lifelong learners.

    VISION
    Our equity-driven expanded learning model empowers all scholars to reach their full potential.  It ensures all scholars have access to high-quality and engaging learning opportunities that integrate academic, enrichment, and social-emotional learning focused on the whole child.

Summer Learning Equity Climate Agreement

  • An equitable school climate responds to a wide range of cultural norms, goals, values, interpersonal relationships, and leadership practices. With this agreement, we want to help students learn to the best of their ability and feel good about themselves. It includes specific actions by which the school staff, families, and students will collectively work to help students achieve high academic and behavioral standards.  This will bring everyone in our school community closer and strengthen our partnerships so our students can soar.

    We affirm our strong commitment to ensuring that every student has equitable access to opportunities and support necessary for realizing their full academic and personal potential. Together, let us embark on a journey of equity, kindness, inclusivity, and excellence in summer learning.
