The York Region District School Board will once again be offering a Grade 6, 7 & 8 Summer School program. This 17 day program is designed to reinforce curriculum. Students must register in the program for their current school grade as this is not an acceleration program. For example, a grade 7 student would register for the grade 7 program as it reinforces grade 7 content.
The program will operate from July 2 to July 24, 2020 (8:45 am - 3:25 pm). Please note that Keswick H.S. times are 8:45 am - 3:33 pm. A typical day has Language and Numeracy instruction in the morning with Arts based programming in the afternoon. There are both lunch and recess breaks during the day. Students will need to bring a lunch, snacks and plenty to drink each day.
The following programs will be offered:
- Language and Math reinforcement for students who do not have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) or an English Language Learner (ELL) designation.
- Language and Math reinforcement for students with an Individual Education Plan (IEP).
- English Language Learner (ELL) Language for students who are ELL Stage 1 or 2 learners. The focus is on reading, writing and speaking.
