Schools still abuzz with things to do

Community School, BCSD options


    The unique learning environment offered by the independent Community School in Sun Valley is available to students and non-students alike in summer.
    From math to Mandarin, Legos to lacrosse, opportunities for fun and learning are there for the choosing. Some courses provide school credit. Others just let kids explore and enjoy their natural surroundings.
    Outdoor activities include backpacking excursions, rock climbing adventures and kayaking trips.
    Youngsters can brush up on their sporting skills at camps on basketball, soccer, lacrosse and volleyball.
    Community School will also provide driver education, a Mad Scientist Chemistry Camp and technology camps
    The classrooms will be busy too this summer, as elementary and middle schoolers can enrich themselves through creative writing, chess or math and upper school students can hone their study skills to get ready for college.
    Descriptions and costs for summer activities can be found at the school’s website at Reach Summer Programs Director Mike Wade at 622-3960, ext. 109.

    For some Blaine County School District students, summer means attendance at summer school to brush up on reading and math skills.
