Five weeks of affordable fun that’s what students and parents count on when they sign up for Summer Adventure!
Celebrating its 30th year, Summer Adventure is an annual enrichment program for students entering Kindergarten through 8th grade. Sponsored by the Santa Monica-Malibu Council of PTAs and the Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation, Summer Adventure will run from June 17 to July 19, 8:30 AM 12:30 PM at Will Rogers Elementary School and John Adams Middle School in Santa Monica, as well as Webster Elementary School in Malibu. Students will enjoy classes like cooking, sports, art, language, science, math and computer.
“The teachers love Summer Adventure because they get to teach classes in subjects they are passionate about that they may not have an opportunity to teach during the year,” commented Linda GreenbergGross, Executive Director of the Education Foundation. Gross added, “The students love it because they can pick classes based on the “fun” factor.” Middle school students especially love the “Robotics”, “Basketball” and “Cooking as Science” classes.
For children who aren’t even in school yet, the “Kindergarten Readiness” classes help them acclimate to the school environment. “Middle School Masters” readies 5th graders for middle school. Classes change each year to pique the interests of students, adding "Math Rocks," "Digital Photography and Photo Editing," and "Flag Football" most recently.
