Summer School

Review and Reinforcement Courses (R&R) are offered to selected students in grades K-7 through the District 39 Summer Enrichment Program. Based on winter benchmark assessment scores and classroom performance, students are recommended by their classroom teacher for the following course(s): R&R ELA, Math, and Both ELA + Math.

Courses will be held at Romona Elementary School (Grades K-3) and Highcrest Middle School (Grades 4-7) from July 2 through July 31, 2024. Each class meets for fifty (50) minutes of instruction each day, Monday through Friday, during the Summer Enrichment Program session. The R&R fee is $100 per class. 

Online registration will be open from February 19, 2024, through March 22, 2024. 

Classes are taught by certified staff, and class size is small. Instruction will focus on student needs and will include a focus on remediating skill deficits and increasing confidence and competence. Students participating in R&R are encouraged to attend the entire four-week session without interruption. Parent cooperation and support are essential for continuous student progress.
