Students can register now for summer school

 


Summer is almost here, which means registration is now open for the Mukilteo School District’s Summer School program.

Sessions providing basic skills instruction in reading, writing, and math will be available at all grade levels.

Elementary school

Elementary students also can take enrichment classes, high school students can take credit recovery classes and earn PE credit in tennis, and special sessions focused on science will be available for students at both Horizon and Discovery elementary schools.

The elementary Summer School program includes Power Up classes that are designed to provide basic skills instruction to students who are performing below grade level in reading, writing, and/or math.

The classes are available on an invitation-only basis and are provided at no cost. If your child did not receive an invitation, contact your school for information about being placed on a waiting list.

Elementary students also can take enrichment classes in the arts, science and technology. Those classes will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis with students already attending Mukilteo schools receiving first consideration.

Families living outside the Mukilteo School District or attending other programs can attend the classes if there is space available. Tuition for the enrichment classes is $225.

The elementary Summer School classes will be held at Odyssey Elementary, at 13025 17th Ave. W. in south Everett, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, from July 7 through Aug. 1.

Bus transportation will be available from locations throughout the school district area. A free breakfast and lunch also will be provided before and after classes.

Middle school

Students attending Horizon and Discovery elementary schools may be invited to attend special four-week programs that will offer hands-on science activities while developing reading, writing and speaking skills.

Some non-English-speaking students also have been invited to attend classes designed to build basic communication skills.

Middle school students who are not meeting standards in the state assessments for English language arts or math are eligible to take classes to reinforce those skills during Summer School.

English language learners in middle school have been invited to attend classes designed to build basic communication skills.

The middle school classes will be held at Voyager Middle School, at 11711 4th Ave. W. in south Everett, from July 7 through Aug. 1. Two 90-minute sessions will be held each day, Monday through Friday, with classes beginning at 9 a.m. and at 10:30 a.m.

A free breakfast and lunch will be served each day and limited bus transportation will be available. No tuition will be charged for the English language arts and math classes.

High school

The high school Summer School program will include online credit-recovery classes in a wide range of subjects for students who have received a failing grade in a class or no credit because of attendance issues.

Each course will be held at Voyager Middle School in daily two-hour blocks beginning at 8 a.m. and at 10 a.m., Monday through Friday, from July 8 through Aug. 9. Tuition is $200 for each 0.5-credit course.

Classes designed to build math and English skills also will be available to Mukilteo high school students who did not pass this spring’s High School Proficiency Exam in reading or writing or who need to pass the end-of-course algebra, geometry or biology exams.

The classes are designed to help the students be successful in meeting state standards when they retake the test in August.

These classes will be held at Voyager Middle School from 8 a.m. to noon, Monday through Friday, from July 7 to Aug. 8. Students taking the classes also may receive 0.5 credit in the subject that was taken. No tuition will be charged for the English or math classes.

A free breakfast and lunch will be available at Voyager before and after the Summer School sessions for all students who are 18 years old and younger.

High school students also can take a class in tennis during Summer School. The class will be held at Mariner High School from 9 a.m. to noon each weekday from July 7 to Aug. 1.

Enrollment for the class will be limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Students completing the tennis class will earn 0.5 physical education credits. Tuition is $200.

In addition, the high school Summer School program will include English language acquisition classes for students who are already enrolled in the school district’s English Language Learner program.
