The district will again offer Pinwheels & Popcorn, an elementary summer enrichment program for students who are currently in grades PreK-6. The classes are designed to offer academic enrichment, artistic expression, and recreational activities.  

Certified instructors will be teaching hands-on activities across the curricular areas of science/math, language arts, and physical education.  These areas are designed to meet the developmental abilities of each age.  In addition, special speakers and field trips will enhance the daily activities. Students will experience new and exciting themes each day throughout the week, including a field trip and water day.

LOCATION AND TIME:  Classes will be held at Wayside Elementary School, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Monday-Friday, June 3 –7.

LUNCH:  Students will need to bring a peanut-free sack lunch and a drink each day, except Friday when lunch will be provided.

LUNCH MOVIE:  Students will be able to choose between two movies during their lunchtime.  

T-Shirt:  This year we are purchasing printed Pinwheels & Popcorn t-shirts for all students to wear on the field trip day and any other days that they would like during the week.  A note will be sent home with field trip information.
