The Fairview Park City School District is pleased to announce several summer extended learning opportunities for our students.
The Early Education Center (EEC) will be providing their regular fee-based summer day camp program for children ages 18 months to entering 5th grade. Please contact the office at (440) 356-3515 to inquire about space availability.
The EEC will also be hosting a free special summer program called DREAM, DESIGN, BUILD. This program will be a summer camp experience for students currently in K-4. Students will be engaged in activities that revolve around designing an outdoor classroom. They will help brainstorm and build areas of the classroom like special seating, an amphitheater and gardens. We will also have special field trips that will incorporate ways to support the environment and reinforce the projects we are working on. This will be a wonderful opportunity to unplug and collaborate with peers. Students will be able to attend one (2 week) session and depending on the response possibly other sessions. Please contact the office at (440) 356-3515 to inquire about space availability or return the form sent home in your child’s backpack.
These programs will be held at Grade Power Learning (located in the Giant Eagle plaza) on Lorain Road in Fairview Park.
