Summer Learning Opportunities

Dear DCS Families:

If you are looking for some extra summer educational opportunities for your student this summer, here is a list of fun learning activities compiled by our Director of Curriculum Angie Hards.

“Learning never ends and we should always take all the opportunities we can to do so,” Hards said. “Even in the summer.”

The Michigan Learning Channel (MLC) has created activity books with weekly themes and lessons for children Pre-K through Grade 6. The activity books are available electronically on the MLC website and are available both in their entirety for the whole summer or broken up by week/theme. Hard copies of the work books are also available in the clear plastic tote that can be found under the overhang at the Cardinal Center, 1490 N. Oak Road.
