Del Mar Pines to provide elementary-age, ‘real’ Summer School

In this day and age, most summer programs for elementary-age children are camps. They can enjoy their summer through play. They can further their talents with shows. They can get wet or go to parks. But what if your child needs a boost this summer? There is a resource just around the corner to enable you to further your child’s education. You don’t have to sign up for a learning center or create and monitor daily homework.

Instead, trust your child with experienced math and language arts teachers in a true summer school environment.

“The teachers build upon the skills already gained over the previous school year and yet provide new tools and challenges that become a foundation for the upcoming year.  “I feel that my children are ready to challenge themselves in English and math after attending Summer Discoveries,” said Manju Woytowtiz, parent of three children who have attended summer school at Del Mar Pines for over eight years.

Your child will enjoy the classes too! The programs are designed to engage the children, entertain, and inspire them. Children want to grow. They want to improve. Given the right environment, they will do just that – and thrive. “The teachers are incredible, curriculum engaging and the atmosphere fun!” said Jennifer Tankersly, mother of two.

If you have a first or second grader, they could attend “Jumpstart Readers.” They would be individually assessed before the start of the class. They would be taught one-on-one, in small groups, and in large group instruction. They would be inspired to read, create, dramatize, and illustrate stories. At the end of the session you would attend a parent-teacher conference.

For your fourth or fifth grader needing help with math, they would attend “Engaging Math.” They would spend an hour playing math games to improve their math facts, number competence, and overall confidence.

Del Mar Pines School is a small, private school in Carmel Valley. During the school year they have 154 students from kindergarten through sixth grade — 22 students and two teachers per grade. They utilize 21st century learning to provide creative and collaborative environments for students to learn. They use 21st century tools, such as iPads and computers for every student, to facilitate research and learning.
