Summer Academic & Enrichment Camp
In an effort to assist parents in reducing the “summer loss of learning,” we have created “The STEAM Crew Camp Accelerated Summer Program” for students in grade levels K -5th. The goal of the program is to have students work with teachers on skill-based activities to keep them sharp for the upcoming school year.
The activities are designed to be a review of material from the past school year and have been pulled from our current reading and math curriculum, so they should be familiar to you and your child. This should also limit the time teachers have to spend “reviewing and re-teaching” skills from the past year. This summer, we will focus on events and activities focused around a STEAM curriculum. We have several field experiences that students will be involved in throughout the summer. To participate, attendance and behavior will be taken into consideration. We can not do this without your support. We are excited to welcome your scholar on Tuesday, May 30, 2023, at the Northshore campus for our Summer STEAM CREW Camp.

- All young people experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer.
- On average, students lose approximately 2.6 months of grade-level equivalency in mathematical computation skills over the summer months. Some students can lose about 2 months of reading achievement.
- The international average of the number of days a student attends school is 193 days. The Rhodes School for the Performing Arts students attend school for 177 days. If we are going to keep pace globally it is important for our students to be engaged academically over the summer months.
