Elementary Summer Enrichment
Students in this program practice and apply skills they have learned at home and at school within the context of fun activities. In past summers, students have enjoyed activities such as robot art, buoyant boats, building a pirate ship, and fingerprint balloon pictures. Each class is built around a high-interest theme, such as “Project STEM,” “Lost in Space!,” “Time Travelers,” “Cook & Create,” and “Nature Detectives.”
Students have opportunities to practice Expanded Core Curriculum skills as they make and follow schedules, organize materials, measure ingredients, write notes and lists, and communicate with others. An invaluable part of the program is the opportunity to interact with other students with visual impairments. Sharing experiences about the challenges they face at home and school can alleviate feelings of isolation and increase confidence. During Elementary Summer Enrichment, students often begin early friendships that continue for years.
One Week Sessions: (ages 6-12)
This one-week program is offered:
- June 11 – June 16
- June 18 – June 23
ESE classes are for elementary students with visual impairments who can attend the full length of the class to which they are admitted. These classes are appropriate for students who are able to complete the full one-week program with a moderate level of support.
Students of elementary age who were formerly served in Practical Experiences in Expanded Core (PEEC) may now apply for the Elementary Summer Enrichment programs.
