Elementary Summer Program 2018

DPIE staff is in the midst of recruiting teachers to work in the Summer STEAM Program for 2018 and currently plans are being made to offer classes on elementary classes on both the east and west side of town so students will be able to attend classes close to home.

Our teachers are currently planning their course offerings and we look forward to introducing the new program in February. We think you will like the programs our teachers are planning.

Below is information about the 2017 session. It serves as a guideline for our summer program–but please note, details and course offerings are subject to change. Subscribe to our newsletter for the latest updates.
