Summer Classes

Our talented team has created amazing summer classes. Please see below for descriptions and email for class fees and registration documents. 

Creative Writing Virtual Class: Work with Master Teacher, Mr. James McCloskey, for six weeks this summer! The goal is for students to end the summer learning more about writing, appreciating their own writing style, and developing a desire to continue writing. Mr. M will lead students on a creative adventure through creative writing, discussion, and sharing. Class begins June 26th and ends August 21st. Grades  Students will need access to Google Documents to share writing. 

Virtual SAT/ACT Summer Math Prep: Our summer math review is perfect for high schoolers preparing for fall testing.  Work with our math guru, Mr. Peter DePaul, as he gives expert test suggestions and math help specific to the SAT and ACT. 

Sports, Superheroes, and Video Games: Are you an avid sports fan? Is ESPN, NFL Network, MLB Network, NBA TV, NHL Network, or Comcast Sportsnet your go to TV channel?  Are you a gamer? Have you seen all of the Marvel movies? Do you constantly debate Batman vs. Superman? Do you love playing video games of the modern age on Playstation or Xbox? Have you fallen into a rabbit hole of vintage video games like Super Mario Brothers and Paperboy on a classic Nintendo or Super Nintendo? If you said yes to any of these questions, then Sports, Superheroes and Video Games for Guys is a fun, weekly club for you!

Join Mr. Richie Blyweiss, an avid sports fan, professional sports mascot for over 15 years, and middle school teacher of 12 years. In this virtual experience, your child will play video games, chat about the latest sports news, participate in fantasy sports leagues, and answer the timeless question – who is the best superhero?!  At the heart of our program is an understanding and appreciation for sportsmanship and kindness – learning how to be social and competitive but also show empathy and respect for others.

Each session will be unique, exciting, and fun! Sessions will occur once a week for a one hour block and will be split into grade groups for students in grades 5-6, 7-8, and 9-12. Each person will need their own computer/laptop, internet access, and access to Google Meet.

Dr. Cipolla and Dr. McCormack’s Recommendation

Parents often express concern about the “summer slide,” meaning a summer without any academic work will result in lost academic skills.  We suggest a balance between summer fun and academics.  Families can incorporate learning during summer walks and car rides. Summer walks are perfect times to practice math and reading.  Have your child read house numbers, street signs, and count cars. Speaking of cars, summer car rides are the perfect time to listen to a podcast or audio book.  Check out Scholastic’s “7 Ways to Stop the Summer Slide”  for more details and links to how you can beat the summer slide and incorporate fun!
