K-5 Summer School a Success

Learning doesn't stop in the summer, just ask our nearly 100 elementary students who recently finished five weeks engaged in our free elementary math and literacy skills camps. These young learners sharpened their math and reading skills and our creative teachers added in some fun STEM and Olympic-themed projects, too!
