Summer School at Hope-Hill
Summer Academic Recovery Academy
Hope-Hill will offer summer school for all students whose families sign up. Hope-Hill has identified students who may benefit from summer school and will reach out to those families to extend a personal invite. Students who are identified have shown significant learning gaps during the 2020-21 school year and we want to do what we can to help close those gaps. Again, all students may participate in summer school. The summer school program will be broken up into two sessions:
Focus on Literacy and Math
8:00am -12:30pm daily
Focus on STEAM Education with hands on learning and project-based learning initiatives.
1:00 – 2:30 daily
Summer school will be five (5) days a week beginning June 2 through June 30. Asynchronous Wednesdays will be discontinued. The summer school hours are from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm daily, and breakfast and lunch will be served. Bus transportation will also be an option for families that request a need for transportation during the application process. We encourage parents to commit to face-to-face instruction for summer school. We also ask that if you sign your child up for summer school that your student is present daily to best benefit from the curriculum and experiences that are being offered. If there are scheduling issues due to summer vacation plans, please be sure to let our summer school administrators know as early as possible. If you have any questions, please reach out to Adrienne B. McCrary at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or Alicia Cole at email@example.com.

Students will engage in innovative hands- on activities while exploring Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM). Our STEAM program will be a fun and engaging four-week summer experience. Students will engage in daily STEAM block-making, building, creating and a variety of projects utilizing the engineering design process.
