Summer Activities at no cost to families. The Mathmobile will be running again this year and will be staffed with three certificated teachers and three paraeducators who will provide play-based math instruction to participants. While the instruction is geared toward elementary students, preschoolers and middle school students are also encouraged to participate. The Mathmobile will run on Mondays from June 24 to Aug. 12.

The Books on the Bus is back for the fifth summer and is an opportunity for students to check out books, read with an adult, and engage in fun reading games. Books on the Bus runs on Wednesdays from June 26 to Aug. 14.

The times and locations for both programs will be:

9:15 – 10:15 Mobile Estates on 67th Avenue
