Summer Enrichment in the Shawnee Mission School District gives students a chance to explore classes like art, music, technology, science, sports, and more! A wide variety of classes are available, including Signature Program Satellite classes at the Center for Academic Achievement for middle school-aged students.
“Summer Enrichment in the Shawnee Mission School District has offered engaging summer learning opportunities for thousands of children for more than three decades,” Misty Mayden-Miles, principal shared. “We offer a wide variety of unique, interest-based classes for children from ages Pre-K through 7th grade throughout the summer.”
Classes are taught by certified teachers and are designed to be hands-on and give students a chance to learn something new. For many of the classes, students share the culmination of their work with families either by bringing completed projects home or by sharing a presentation at the end of the week.
“In Summer Enrichment, students have the opportunity to explore classes with activities that are different from what they might experience during the school year,” Mayden-Miles expressed. “As I walk through the building I am excited to see how engaged our students and staff are as they participate in hands-on, interactive, and high-interest activities together. I am proud that families continue to view our program as a safe and fun place for their child to learn, explore, and grow year after year.”
