2020 Summer Learning Portal


This site has been designed for students in PreKindergarten through Sixth grade. The purpose of this learning portal is to support our students to stay engaged and excited about learning over the summer. Each week, for eight full weeks, this portal will showcase a variety of thought-provoking, challenging activities that reflect all academic subjects and foster valuable 21st century thinking skills. Students will also have the ability to work at their own pace allowing for a more personalized experience.

Week 2: July 13-17 Week 6: August 10-14

Week 3: July 20-24 Week 7: August 17-21
