PWCS Summer School Programs
The Office of Student Management and Alternative Programs (OSMAP) provides summer academic and enrichment opportunities for students in grades K-12. The goal of the summer school program is to provide a variety of educational opportunities that serve to mitigate summer learning loss and prepare students for future learning experiences which ultimately lead to improved student achievement. 
Students in grades K-1 will receive instruction in language arts only. Those students in grades 2-4 will receive instruction in language arts and math.

Current middle school students, as well as rising sixth graders (current fifth graders) and rising ninth graders (current eighth graders), will attend the middle school and be taught by a team of teachers in three 75-minute rotation blocks of language arts, math, and social skills. The Student Success Academy is offered to rising sixth, current sixth, current seventh, and current eighth grade students. This one-week skill building program focuses on organization, time management, study skills, learning styles, and note taking.  This course will be taught by a professional school counselor.

Art enrichment opportunities are also available for students in grades two through eight. 

For more information please check out the home page under schools tab/summer school.
