Summer is a time for fun with friends and family, but it shouldn’t be a time where learning stops.
On average, students lose nearly half of their school-year learning during the summer months. Our students deserve our best efforts to give them the instruction they need to prevent summer learning loss. Our Summer Academy is a program that brings all TPS faculty and staff together for a single goal: ensuring students are prepared for success on day one of the next school year.
The program runs from Monday, June 22, 2020 to Thursday, July 16, 2020.
Students in grades K-5 (entering 1-6 graders) will begin at 7:30 a.m. and end at 12:30 p.m. YMCA GO will be offered at all elementary sites from 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m
Students in grades 6-12 (entering 7-12 graders ) will begin at 8:30 a.m. and end at 1:30 p.m. Afternoon enrichment will begin at 1:30 p.m. and end at 4:30 p.m.
Breakfast and lunch will be served through Summer Cafe! Dinner will also be provided in partnership with the Food Bank for those in afternoon enrichment.
At each of the eight school sites across Tulsa Public Schools, summer enrichment programs run by community partner organizations provide fun activities during the afternoon. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of this critical opportunity to help your child begin the new school year prepared for academic success.
We look forward to partnering with you this summer to help your child stay on track for academic success!
