Summer learning is in full swing in MVSD for over 1,000 students who are taking part in a variety of academic enrichment programs.  Themed “The Best Summer Ever” MVSD’s four-week summer offerings have students engaged in Math, Language Arts, STEM, Social Emotional Learning and more as they participate in Summer School, the Migrant Education Summer Program including a class for parents and Newcomer students, in-person and virtual Extended School Year (ESY) programs, the Summer Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program, New to Kindergarten classes, Preschool programs and the Summer Library program.

A favorite among the students is the STEM enrichment which includes introduction to color coding using Ozobots, a desk-friendly coding curriculum.  Students from kindergarten to 8th grade are enjoying programming their Ozobot Evo robot as they learn coding techniques and explore technology.  Even the preschool students are getting in on the STEM action, taking part in Junior Robotics with Wind Tree Education.

Summer school teachers are incorporating instructional strategies from Write from the Beginning, UCI Mathematics, Handwriting without Tears, and Creative Curriculum.  The Think Together program is a key educational partner in MVSD’s Best Summer Ever and is providing extended learning opportunities for students until 5 p.m. each day.

“I have a great group of students who are heading to Kindergarten this fall,” said Jackie Morreale, teacher.  “They are so excited to be here and they are eager to learn.  It’s going to be a great four weeks,” she added.

The District’s Summer Library Program is also running, providing fun and enriching activities focused on literacy.  Children can visit the school libraries at Maxson, Miramonte, Payne, Parkview and Twin Lakes which are open from, 12 to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday through July 15.

“We are very excited to offer such robust summer programs for our students,” said Dr. Jefferey Lagozzino, Interim Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services.  “The comprehensive learning will serve our students well.”

Each student in the District also received an At-Home Summer Learning Kit with math and science games and hands-on activities for parents and students to play and learn together this summer while at home.
