The Fun Doesn’t Stop in May; Summer L.E.A.P Program Returns in June

Sling-shot rockets, comic books, dance, theatre, storytelling, foreign languages, chess games, sports and more.

Those are just some of the hands-on learning activities in store for students that participate in the Alta Loma School District’s Learning Enrichment Activities and Projects (LEAP) summer enrichment program.

LEAP kicks off after the end of the regular school year in May, with two separate two-week sessions from June 3-14 and June 17-28. Students from all schools in the district are encouraged to participate in one or both sessions.

“There’s no better way to keep students busy, active and mentally engaged during the non-school months than with learning activities that not only keep them motivated, but also are fun,” said ALSD Superintendent James Moore. “Our summer learning enrichment program offers curriculum that we typically don’t offer during the regular school year, which affords students the opportunity to learn an assortment of skills outside of traditional classroom subjects. “

Taught by credentialed teachers, classes are offered for elementary and junior high school students. Each session will offer classes from 8-10 a.m. and 10 a.m.-noon.

“The LEAP classes are designed to be fun and participatory so that students can learn by doing hands-on projects that inspire them to be creative, innovative and collaborative. We want them to learn to communicate and think critically, all while enjoying what they are doing,” Moore said.

Information about fees, registration, course descriptions, schedules and more will soon be available on the LEAP into Summer link on the Alta Loma School District website.
