The Grandview C-4 2021 Summer Explorations on-site program is scheduled for full-days, June 14-June 25, 2021. Additionally, there is a virtual option, for students grades 8-12 from June 7th-30th, 2021. There is a second virtual session, for students grades 8-12, July 7th-30th, 2021. This year’s program will once again provide a challenging curriculum including a component of fine arts. As always, teachers will provide opportunities for students to review learning from the 2020-2021 school year, engage students in hands-on project-based learning of new concepts and skills, and integrate technology in each classroom.
A variety of academic courses with instruction centered on English Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science will be offered. All courses will be aligned with the Missouri Learning Standards. High school students will have additional opportunities to attend some virtual courses.
The Summer Explorations program will be located at Conn-West for grades K-5. Grandview Middle School will house grades 6-8 and grades 9-12 (operated separately within GMS). The extended school year for Special Education students will be located at the High Grove Early Childhood Center.
All registration for Summer Explorations will once again be completed online. Students in grades K-12 will begin registration on April 7th at 4:30 pm. On this same date, families without internet connectivity have one on-campus opportunity (at Grandview High School) to complete electronic registration from 4:30 pm-7:00 pm. This year, students in high school will begin course enrollment in May, and courses will be tentative based on the completion of a students’ final assessments (completed through the GHS Counseling Center).
LINC will provide before and aftercare for elementary Summer Explorations’ students. Breakfast and lunch will be provided daily at all sites, free of charge.
Additional information regarding online registration will be sent via email for elementary and middle school students; whereas, a high school course enrollment will be completed in May. All registration information will be posted on the district website.
We hope your child will take advantage of the Summer Explorations program and join us for an engaging summer of learning. At the time of registration, you will have an option to apply for a paid scholarship to an enrichment program pending availability and access. More information will come from Summer School sites regarding the one-week enrichment opportunity.
