Chesapeake Public Schools is pleased to provide a variety of high quality instructional programs for students this summer. Generally, student placement in summer school is determined by the grade in which a student is enrolled during the 2017-2018 school year. Some classes have specific grade level requirements and/or other prerequisites. Students and parents/guardians should consult with guidance counselors and/or teachers to determine which programs may be appropriate. All summer programs and classes are contingent on school budget approvals, sufficient enrollment, and availability of appropriately endorsed instructional staff.
All students are invited to participate in this year’s CTE Enrichment Program! Mr. Wiggins and Mrs. Scheiner are excited to sponsor an after school program that will focus on projects that incorporate building, tiling, painting, planting and much more to revitalize the courtyard. If you like to create beautiful spaces by working with your hands and having fun, stop by room 902 to get an application. The first of four meetings will be Monday, April 23rd.
