What Will Your Kids Do This Summer? By Dr. Avis Leverett
University School of Milwaukee’s Summer I.D.E.A.S. program is back on campus for in-person learning this summer and I couldn’t be more excited. Summer I.D.E.A.S. staff is busy preparing to implement the health and safety practices that have proven successful during the school year, including enhanced cleaning, a hospital grade air filtration system, and limited class sizes for improved physical distancing.
This summer will be the perfect opportunity for children to learn, create, explore, and play.
For nearly 30 years families in the greater Milwaukee area have chosen Summer I.D.E.A.S. for the enrichment, academic, and athletic opportunities offered to children in PK (age 3) through grade 12. Summer I.D.E.A.S. administrators are working hard to make this year better than ever, with offerings including:
- New recreational afternoon day camp in grades PK–4
- Outstanding faculty composed of USM and other highly qualified instructors
- New build-your-own program options in grades 1–4 and week-long sessions beginning June 21
- Summer Institute for Academic Advancement, open to students in grades 9–12, is back with in-person and distance learning options
Programming will run from June 21 to August 20, and registration will open in March. For more information visit www.usmk12.org/summer. We can’t wait to see you!
