ASPIRE 2019

March 25, 2019

ASPIRE (Academic Summer Program Including Recreation and Education) is a program designed to help students continue to grow as learners throughout the summer.

ASPIRE makes learning fun through various educational games, hands- on learning experiences and field trips.

For five weeks, a group of grade 1-5 students participate in the ASPIRE program. In ASPIRE, students participate in activities designed to build skills in math, reading, writing, problem solving and executive functioning. A high energy team of teachers, a nutritionist and support staff strategically blended academic programming with activity-based and cultural activities to create a learning environment in which "students became better readers, without even realizing it," in the words of an ASPIRE teacher. The program is very successful in curbing the "summer slide" when schoolchildren lose some of their learning from the previous school year over the two-month summer vacation.

Check out some of the quotes from students who have participated in the ASPIRE program below: 

 "I don't want to go outside to play...unless I can bring my book with me."

"Why are the girl goats and the boy goats kept in separate pens?"

"I am only going to paint with my fingers from now on!"

"How can I find a way to make 3D glasses without acetate paper?"

"Hey, wait a minute. Are we learning math?"

"Our mom told us if we don't listen at home we'll be grounded from ASPIRE."

"Are we having Genius Hour today?!"

"I closed my eyes as soon as I went to bed so ASPIRE would come faster!"
