Dear Matheson Park Parents,
The end of the school year is fast approaching and many of you are looking at options for summer school. Unfortunately due to APS district requirements for the K-3 Plus summer school program, Matheson Park was not selected be a summer school site. While this may be inconvenient for some parents, APS does have summer school programs that your child may qualify for.
The APS Summer School program this year is called K-5 Summer Learning Adventure. It will be held at four schools around the APS and will extend student’s reading and math instruction in a summer-camp environment with in class enrichment, field trips, theme based activities, PE and fine arts instruction. It is open to any students in Kindergarten through 5th grade who qualify. Enrollment is limited so please let your child’s teacher know if you would like to have your child considered for this summer program. The dates for summer classes are June 18 through July 24th.
This summer Matheson Park Elementary will also be the site for the City of Albuquerque, Parks and Recreation summer program. Their program will run from June 2nd until July 31st. More information regarding registration for this program will be coming soon.
Keeping students active and learning is an important part of having students ready for the next school year. I hope all of our Matheson Park students have an enriching summer.
