School District 43 summer school registration is nearing and this year Burke Mountain students will have an opportunity to go to summer school close to home, thanks to the opening last year of Smiling Creek elementary school.
From July 9 to 26, the Coquitlam school will host Kindergarten-to-Grade 1 Transition, English Reading/Writing, Outdoor Science, Visual and Performing Arts, and Coding, also known as computational thinking.
“We are pleased to add a summer learning location in this rapidly growing part of Coquitlam,” stated Murray Peters, principal of the Summer Learning program in a press release. “This will be a wonderful opportunity to get more students in this part of the school district involved in Summer Learning."
Summer Learning courses are free for students who meet the school district’s B.C. residency requirements.
This summer’s program will enroll approximately 6,000 students in Grade 1-12 courses at 14 school sites through the school district.
For young kids, elementary summer learning registration begins Friday, April 26 and parents are encouraged to access and update their children’s account in advance of registering.
Middle and secondary registration begins April 30 and May 3.
