Research shows that students lose some of their skills during the summer months. This state-funded program will keep students engaged in literacy and math over the course of 7 weeks during June and July. Students are selected for this program based on progress in literacy and math and/or by teacher recommendation. The goal of this program is to help current kindergarten, first and second grade students maintain academic skills over the summer so that they are ready to hit the ground running in the fall.

All Summer School staff members are current LPS employees. The morning academic teachers are all currently LPS elementary teachers. They are well-versed in the Colorado Academic Standards for elementary learners. Our afternoon enrichment teachers are certified PE, Art, Music and Drama teachers.
Students have the opportunity to participate in a half or full day program. The morning program is focused on academics.

Students not staying for afternoon enrichment are welcome to stay for lunch if accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Each student in the Summer School program will have the opportunity to take home a Chromebook Tablet device that will allow for additional online learning, practice and support in literacy and math. Students will be able to use the device at home all summer. The device will be returned to the student’s home school on the first day of the new school year.
