Summer Thrive Program

Each year, PWCS Title I funds a Summer Thrive Program designed to provide continuous learning during the Summer break. For each level of school, the Summer Thrive Program looks a little different.


For the elementary school level, every Title I teacher specialist distributes pre-created Reading or Math packets to 50 students. Each teacher connects with the 50 families at a Summer Thrive Event. The teachers discuss and explain the importance of summer learning, review materials, and provide ideas and suggestions of things to do with the materials given.

Students can receive fun math activities for the families to work on together while enhancing mathematical skills. For reading, students can receive a chance to pick books they would love to read over the summer and build an at-home library.

Student Opportunity and Multilingual Services Present a Parent Session

Monday, August 8, 2022

In-person session at Gar-Field HS Auditorium at 6 p.m. in English and 7 p.m. in Spanish

Just as schools have an inherent responsibility to educate the students they serve, parents and families with gifted children have an equal, if not greater responsibility to ensure their children are prepared to be successful. Raising resilient children who are able to persevere in today's complex society is no easy task. Parents must compete with the latest technology, social media, the child's peer group, and the demands placed on them at work and home. Despite the challenges that often present themselves, parents are the bound to engage and interact as their child's first teacher.

In this session, participants will be provided research and practices that all parents and families to advocate for and support their gifted child. They will also be able to identify practices that values and honor each student's unique learning style and provide opportunities to grow academically, cognitively, socially, and emotionally according to their talents and abilities.
