Summer Journey 2017
Once again the MVR-III School District will offer all K-8 students, free of charge, an exciting approach to summer learning called Summer Journey. The Summer Journey program will be held at four designated elementary sites for K-5th (Coleman, Robertsville, Truman, and Zitzman) and at the Meramec Valley Middle School for 6th – 8th. We have planned to begin the Summer Journey program on Thursday, May 25, 2017, and end the program on Wednesday, June 28, 2017.
The Summer Journey program is open to all students entering kindergarten for the fall of 2017 through those currently attending 8th grade. The Summer Journey program will be an all-day program Monday through Friday. Please note if you are the parent of a child who will be entering kindergarten in the fall of 2017, I strongly encourage you to consider enrolling your child in Summer Journey. The four elementary sites will have a full day option for those entering kindergarten. Transportation will be provided at the beginning and end of each day for the four elementary sites (incoming Kindergarten and current K – 4th grade students) and the middle school (current 5th – 8th grade students). Please note that current 5th grade students will take the intermediate courses at Meramec Valley Middle School and current 8th grade students will have the options of enrolling in the 8th grade courses at MVMS and/or signing up for Pacific High School regular summer courses; however, transportation is not provided for Pacific High School courses.
No matter the courses you may choose for your student this summer, make no mistake about it; our summer program will be FUN for kids. Summer Journey’s extraordinary educational goals are comprised of morning sessions that focus on academic courses with hands-on instruction centered in reading, language arts, math, social studies and/or science. Summer Journey afternoon classes will include different additional learning opportunities that include physical activity as well as artistic and creative opportunities to explore areas of interest. Excellent attendance will be rewarded on an individual basis as well as to qualify students for drawings and daily prizes for all those enrolled in the Summer Journey K-8 program.
Please complete and return the enclosed enrollment materials for your child to their classroom teacher or the school office. In order to ensure that our elementary and middle school staffing and transportation is in place for our students, we will need to have all summer school enrollment packets returned by Friday, May 5, 2017. If packets are received after Friday, May 5, students will be placed on a waiting list and the building principal will let you know if openings arise that will allow your student to be a part of Summer Journey.
