Summer News! - You are invited to a summer filled with learning experiences that will help your brain blossom! As we head into summer, children and adults alike may have images of sleeping until noon, riding roller coasters, splashing in the pool, or building sandcastles on sunny, sandy beaches. After ten months of growth in the classroom inspired by awesome teachers, kids do need a break. However, with a little effort the academic "summer slide" can be minimized. Students can have fun continuing to learn during the summer and keep their minds razor-sharp, preparing them for a successful transition to the next grade level and beyond.

The purpose of this website is to present a resource where both parents and students may turn to experience fresh, exciting ideas in education. Some website links are suitable for older students to explore on their own. Parents of younger children will probably want to spend some time exploring the links with their children, guiding them to areas to promote growth and learning. Throughout the website, students of all ages, abilities, and interests will be inspired and motivated to learn for the fun of it!
