Dear Summer Adventure Parents,
Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for completing the survey, and providing us with feedback about your experiences at Portledge Summer Adventures. We have heard your requests and will be working to fulfill them!
This summer, you can look forward to additional science offerings including our Global Villages Science classes. These courses will be an opportunity for students to trade videos with a class in a developing country studying the same topic. Students will exchange data, experiences and ask questions of their global partner. It will be a wonderful way to not only learn about the science topic at hand, but about what other students experience daily in their world. For example in Global Scientist, students will learn the chemistry of water and also learn about water availability from their global partner. Other topics covered will be Global Doctors: Anatomy, Global Doctors: DNA, Video Game Creator for Middle Schoolers and Story Book Engineer for younger students. We look forward to these new classes and what new topics Ms. McPhee and Mrs. Powel will be bringing us as well.
We will also add more science building and engineering classes where we will partner with Webb Institute, the Naval Engineering College in Glen Cove. Students will build an underwater robot and also design a project as well using physics and engineering concepts. Those classes will be offered in July and early August.
We will be adding more academic options for the Add-ons as well as sports, art and music for little ones. Cake Bake and Decorate will be back as well as an additional Organic Smoothie Making class and so much more! Come join the fun this summer with us at Portledge Summer Adventures!
We look forward to a super summer for your child this year and can’t wait to see you!
