This summer we are once again planning on offering courses through our summer school program. Students who enroll in these courses can earn class credits, whether they are taking courses for recovery credit (failed a course during the school year or just want to improve on a grade they previously earned), are working ahead on coursework to free up their schedules, or just want to take an elective class. Many of the classes we offer are available online and are a great option for students who may need more flexibility with their summer schedules if they are traveling or working throughout the summer.
The summer school schedule is split up into two separate sessions, each equivalent to a single semester class during the traditional school year. A student wanting to take or make up an entire year course would enroll in both session 1 and session 2. The courses we are planning to offer this summer include the online courses: U.S. Government, Economics, World History, U.S. History, English 9-12, Humanities, and Health as well as onsite classes: English 9-12, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Chemistry, Biology, ICP (session 1 only), and Physical Education. Our first session runs from June 14th to July 2nd. We take the week of July 4th off and our second session picks up on July 12th and runs through July 30th.
I personally enjoy teaching the physical education course during the first summer session! In this course I enjoy exploring some of the great activities Fort Wayne has to offer. We take many bike rides around the Fort Wayne trails, enjoy activities at our local parks (Frisbee golf, pickle ball, tennis, badminton, and various team sports), take day trips to hike and kayak at Chain-O-Lakes State Park, go bowling, and much more. This is a great opportunity for students to explore what Fort Wayne has to offer, enjoy activities they may not be able to do during the traditional school year, and earn a physical education credit that is required for graduation. I have also had the opportunity to teach several of the math courses throughout the summer during the second session. I look forward to teaching these courses again this summer!
