    What is District 63's Summer Enrichment Program?

    Our Summer Enrichment Program for all students entering PreK - 8th grade in the 2022-2023 school year (as well as graduating 8th graders) students. Occurring in the afternoons during the month of July and early August, any currently registered District 63 student will be able to choose one of two sessions - and two one-hour enrichment classes - rooted in the Illinois Learning Standards for all subject areas - on topics of interest. Some enrichment classes will be more heavily focused on academic subjects while other sessions will be based on other topics of interest (e.g. sports, arts and crafts, drama, and more). All classes will be facilitated by certified educators.

    What are the dates and times for this program?

    Students can sign-up to participate in one of the two sessions offered - each runs Monday-Thursday (no program on Fridays):

    Times:

    • Enrichment Class #1: 1:15-2:15 p.m. each day

    Where will classes take place?

    What enrichment classes are available to students?

    Are there remote and in-person options?

    Due to the engaging, hands-on nature of our enrichment classes, all offerings are for in-person learners only. 

    Is there a cost to participate in this program?

    No. This is the best part - it's free to all registered District 63 students! All materials and supplies will be provided by District 63 staff.

    Is transportation provided for student(s)?

    While parents are welcome to drop-off and pick-up their students, District 63 is also offering free bus transportation for participating students. You can choose the bus transportation option during the registration process. 

    My child is participating in a morning invitation-only summer school program. Can my child still participate in this afternoon enrichment program?

    Yes. District 63's Summer Enrichment Program was scheduled strategically so that all students can participate in the afternoons. If your child will already be at another school for a morning summer school program, busing between schools (if needed) will be provided. Additionally, your child can participate in our Lunch Bridge Program, through which students will be provided lunch and playtime in the break between programs. If you would like your child to join the Lunch Bridge Program, you can select that option during the registration process. 

    My child is participating in Expanded Learning's Summer Camp Academy. Can my child still participate in this afternoon enrichment program?

    Of course! And busing will be provided to transport your child safely to and from enrichment classes each day.

    How do I register my child(ren) to participate?
