Summer is right around the corner!

We love for our kids to have fun while learning. We wanted to share some activities to keep students from that "summer slide" that happens when their minds are not engaged. Please refer to this flyer to see events and activities that will keep your child busy and learning while having fun at the same time! This flyer will be updated as new programs and activities are announced.
