Summer Enrichment

While school may be out for summer, parents may still be looking for educational experiences for their children. For those parents who find online educational resources an option for how their children might spend time, the district has compiled and categorized for your convenience, a list of such resources. Our user-friendly site lists activities such as virtual museum tours and zoo visits as well as some academic sites for those who may want to reinforce and review what was taught during distance learning. Other resources that your child may enjoy include educational podcasts and binge-worthy influencer personalities whose expertise is teaching through highly-engaging demonstrations.
