We are very excited to announce our 2021 Summer School program! The extra instruction kids receive over the summer will help fill any gaps in learning, reinforce important skills, and better prepare them for the following school year. Bussing will be available at designated locations in Waseca. Once we know who would like bussing we will figure out the bus stops.
Our theme is Road Trip! Each teacher will have fun activities that revolve around our theme for the students to participate in each day. We are even working on a few local field trips! Students will work on reading, math, and be provided with a morning snack every day. All TEAM students are welcome to attend!
We strongly urge you to take advantage of this opportunity. Please return the form sent home or fill out the link below by Friday, May 14! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher.
