    Summer of Learning Wraps Up at SB Unified Elementary Schools

    Hundreds of Santa Barbara Unified elementary school students wrapped up summer school on July 14th.

    The month-long program spent mornings providing supplemental education in English, Math, and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math). Two dual-language immersion classrooms were held for students as well. 

    About 500 students from all SB Unified elementary schools took part in the program that was hosted at Franklin, McKinley, and Monroe.

    Students also had the option of attending an after-school camp that included field trips to UCSB, the movie theater, Art From Scrap, MOXI, the Watershed, and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art.  

    “Our students had the chance to spend extra time this summer learning while having a fun time with engaging teachers and programs. I want to thank the parents, faculty, staff, and community partners who took time out of their busy schedules to help our students learn,” said Dr. Hilda Maldonado, Superintendent.

    Summer School was held at each high school back in June as well. Many students who attended the classes were working hard to ensure they received a grade of “C” or better in A – G classes for college eligibility.  

    Additionally, a number of eligible students who qualify for an Extended School Year through Special Education completed their four-week program on July 14th. The Extended School Year program serves select students from pre-K through adult transition years and focuses on maintaining student skills to prevent excessive regression during the summer break.

    A STEAM Academy for junior high students will begin on August 7. Students taking part in the program have already been invited by their schools. The STEAM Academy will build their skills in math integrated with fun activities that include Engineering, Science, and the arts.
