Elementary summer school
April 29, 2013: Summer school classes for elementary grades K-5 are now full and new enrollees will be placed on a wait list.The Video Editing class is still open to current 4th and 5th graders.
The elementary summer school program is for current K through 5th grade students who would like to get a jump-start on next year’s learning. The program provides for both reinforcement of learned skills and remedial assistance over the summer. Summer school classroom teachers use high-leverage instructional practices including GLAD to improve students’ language arts skills, technical (non-fiction) reading and writing, and math skills. Classes are generally limited to 22 students. Each classroom will have a highly qualified teacher and teaching assistant. All students will participate in ongoing formative assessment to measure progress toward learning goals.
This year, some of our summer school participants will enjoy the added benefit of master teachers providing GLAD* units and demonstrations for one week in the classroom.
Summer school is an excellent opportunity to sharpen skills and get a running start for the next school year. Students on Free and Reduced Lunch may be eligible for partial scholarships,if funds are available. Scholarship request forms are available at the link above. Space is limited, so get your registration in early. Mail your completed registration materials to Issaquah School District, ISD Elementary Summer Program, Attn: Elementary Bookkeeper, 565 NW Holly Street, Issaquah, WA 98027.
