Summer school is once again located at Chilliwack secondary school, with the exception of the Sustainable Vegetable Production program at Sardis. Registration is now open for summer learning programs.

Classes filling up for elementary students hoping to learn over the summer

Summer Learning registration is open, and classes are already filling up.

As school wraps up, many parents are looking for ways to enhance their children’s learning, keep their brains working, and find success in grade completion courses.

Elementary summer school programs are popular in Chilliwack, with several classes running for each grade.

Grade 1s can enrol in ‘3 Rs on the Move’, Grade 2s and 3s can enrol in Fit with Lit or Math on the Move (but not both). Those classes are held in the mornings from July 4 to July 17.

Grade 4 and 5 programs are also called Fit with Lit and Math on the Move, but are held in the afternoons.

There is still room in a Grade 4-6 program called Digital Literacy (July 4-17). However, the new Coding for Kids courses have already filled up.

For students new to Canada, an ELL course is also available, with one class for primary students and another for intermediate students. Both of those classes are only one third full.

There are different kinds of classes for middle school students. The Summit Courses are required for students who did not complete their current grade. The school will inform parents if their child has to attend a Summit Course. However, there is also a class that previews the work to come in the year ahead, and that is not a mandatory course. Both run July 4 to July 28 in the mornings.

A Math 10 pre-calculus preview course is also running for two weeks at the beginning of July.

Finally, secondary school classes are held from July 4 to Aug. 31, and run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Skill Exploration 10 is offered to Grade 9 students and gives students four credits for next year.

There are also Independent Directed Studies (IDS) 12 for Grade 10 and 11 students. They can work toward 40 hours for two credits, or 80 hours for four credits.

Most of the summer learning programs are held at Chilliwack secondary school, with the exception of the Sustainable Vegetable Production program at Sardis secondary.

There is no fee for summer learning. To learn more, visit http://www.sd33.bc.ca/summer-learning. Registration for Summer Learning is online. If you need to register in person, phone Jeff Dartnell at 604-701-4916.
