Math Program-This two-week summer program is designed for students who would benefit from additional practice and assistance to ease their transition into Grade 7, 8 & 9. Students will participate in engaging lessons to meet their individual needs and learning styles.
Literacy Program- Students can be initially engaged in reading by focusing on their comprehension and enjoyment of a given story, poem, blog, or news report. Fundamentally, balanced literacy revolves around two primary strands, are a reading strand and a writing strand, each of which mirrors the other. Engaging lessons will be provided to ensure all students’ needs and learning styles are met.

Promoting Well-Being – Bike Safety
Cycling is a fun and healthy activity, it’s a low-cost way to get around, and it’s good for the planet. Cyclists have to share the road with cars, pedestrians and other cyclists.
Before you head out on a bike, learn the rules of the road, helmet information and safety tips for cyclists of all ages. As recommended by Parachute Canada:
- Always wear a helmet. Properly worn, it can reduce the risk of serious head injury by up to 80%. Know and follow the 2V1 Rule.
- Be prepared. Know the rules of the road.
- Check your ride. A fun and safe cycling experience starts with a properly equipped bicycle.
- Be a role model. Set a good example and practice safety together.
The Ministry of Transportation’s Young Cyclist Guide has additional information on riding tips to keep you safe while cycling.
