Summer Academy helps current elementary students build academic, social, and emotional skills for the next school year. Students work on core subjects and skills, but this year, the program introduced enrichment periods. The last period of each day provides students with a chance to explore new subjects and for teachers to draw on their own passions.

This year’s enrichment periods featured dance classes, investigative games, golf lessons, art projects, and more. This week, fifth graders produced movies on iPads, experiencing everything from storyboarding to acting to editing. First graders imitated Louise Nevelson’s layered sculptural art with everyday craft supplies, and kindergarteners were introduced to French, singing the children’s song “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes” in the language.
