Summer opportunities for Aberdeen students

The Aberdeen School District is offering summer learning opportunities at all of its grade schools and at Miller Junior High School beginning Monday, Aug. 5. The major focus is to help students improve their reading skills in what the school districts hopes is a relaxed, engaging environment.

Summer school is being offered as part of the Title 1 and LAP programs and will run from 9 -11:30 a.m. Monday through Thursday, Aug. 5-22. Lunch will be served at no cost.

At the elementary schools, the focus is on reading for a jump start to next year. Students will be using technology such as iPads in support of their learning. The groups will be small with the focus on students’ individual needs.

At Miller Junior High School, teachers have ordered hands-on projects for students to increase their math and reading skills by exploring science, technology, engineering and math “investigations.” By following the clues, students will conduct investigations to learn the answers.

Sign-up forms were sent home with students at the end of the school year and are also available on the district web site at Contact Jim Sawin at (360) 538-2171 to learn more.
