4K Summer School

All children who will be entering 5-Year-Old Kindergarten in fall of 2018 and did not attend the MMSD 4K Program, or who received a recommendation from their 4K teacher, are invited to attend the MMSD 4K Summer School Program. We call this program Jump Start to Kindergarten. The program provides children with learning opportunities to prepare them for 5K. They will engage in pre-literacy and math activities and gain a foundational school experience. The daily schedule includes community building, small group instruction, child-guided exploration and outdoor activities.

The Summer School program provides students in kindergarten through 4th grade the opportunity to receive additional academic support and build upon their math and literacy skills during the summer.

The program runs from 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. and is divided into three periods of approximately 80 minutes each. During this time, students receive instruction in either math, literacy or both, and enrichment courses.

4th Grade Summer School Promotion

The 4th Grade Promotion component of summer school is based on state law and MMSD policy. Students who are at risk of non-promotion to 5th grade attend summer school to increase academic skills in order to be promoted to the next instructional level. The courses give students the opportunity for additional study on the subject content areas that require the additional work in order to be promoted to the next grade level.

If your child is at risk for non-promotion, you should have received a letter from your school regarding this process. Please contact your school counselor or principal if you have any questions. 

Students attending for non-promotion may also enroll in the afternoon Summer Recreation and Enrichment Center (SREC) program at their summer school site. The SREC program runs from 12:00-4:00 p.m., and includes lunch, rest time, afternoon snack and a variety of recreation and enrichment activities (outdoor and large group games, science, art, music and more). If you would like your child to attend this program, please make sure to select that you would like your child to attend for the full day (from 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.) during the online enrollment process.
