At this meeting we will be discussing the itinerary of the trip, dates, costs, addressing any other questions you may have, and assessing the level of participation.

Remember to check the After School board by the Gym to pick up registration forms for summer camps. Or you can download them from the summer camp email sent out by Mr. Weaver. Camps have minimum and maximum enrollment, so be sure to sign up soon to secure your spot!

Summer camps and other activities are a great way to keep your children engaged and learning over the summer. They can provide enrichment, academic support, or just something new and fun. Take advantage of the offerings at CHPCS and prevent “summer slide”!
