Summer Fun 2018 The students are so excited for summer to begin, but after the first week, you may find that your children are getting restless and needing some structure to their days. Below is a collection of great ideas and resources to keep children busy and engaged all summer long. If you have more ideas or resources to share, please do! Write to Lynsay_Gillis@hcpss.org. We will keep a tab updated on our school’s website. Happy Summer! We can’t wait to hear about all your adventures next year.
Camps There are a variety of camps offered each week in our area. Most camps provide before and after care for parents who work outside of the home and many can be half or full-day. Half-day camps cost less and still give your child the benefit of skill-building and socialization with peers.
We are lucky to have some beautiful libraries in our county! Here is the link for classes and events. https://hclibrary.org/classes-events/ Encourage your child to join the summer reading program and take a class. Make it a weekly visit!
