What is Summer Expedition?
Summer Expedition is a 10-day learning journey for students currently enrolled in or going into Gr. 7 & 8 in September. Spend some time this summer finding alternative, fun, engaging activities, infused with lessons in literacy and numeracy, to help them prepare for the next grade level. Summer Expedition will give them confidence, create new excitement about learning, and fill some of the learning gaps. This “expedition” will be blended virtual and in-person journey next summer and will be taught by grade level in small bubbles, with the particular purpose of being ready for the next grade and fill in any learning gaps! Some may be strong in Math and need help in language or the other way around OR need help in BOTH! Regardless, participation in all literacy and numeracy activities is expected and promise to be engaging.
