Summer Impact!

July 6th to July 30th

Mondays - Fridays - 8 AM to Noon


We are excited to offer an opportunity for BICS students in grades 2nd to 8th (grade next school year), to attend a FREE summer learning program called Summer Impact. Summer Impact will give students an opportunity to reinforce what they have learned, and strengthen the skills needed to move to the next grade.


Summer Impact will be held from July 6th to July 30th, Mondays through Fridays from 8AM until Noon. There will be 4 one-week sessions.  You may choose one or more weeks. Each week will be a different theme (see registration form). Students will be offered a daily breakfast, morning snack, and a free lunch to go. The day starts with a morning check in followed by entertaining activities focusing on math, reading, and language skills. We will also include fun, team-building activities and STEAM (science-technology-engineering-art-math) projects.


There is a limited number of spaces available, so hurry and register by June 18th. Registration forms were sent home with students or you can download a registration form by clicking here.
