Summer Explorers

Grades K - 8

Come explore with us!

In 2022, the Abbotsford School District is increasing the number of learning opportunities available for our K-8 students this year in our Summer Explorers Program. Student well-being and skill-building is the foundation for this 3 week, inquiry-based exploration program. Each program will consist of focused literacy, or numeracy, instruction. In addition, students will be provided with a meaningful deeper learning experience around one area of passion from the provincial curriculum. Recreational physical activity and Indigenous principles of learning will be woven into each learning community. As a culmination of the Summer Explorer’s Program, each school site will provide parents the opportunity to take part in a celebration or demonstration of learning.

What You Need to Know

Summer Explorers will continue to be free of charge, funded by the Ministry of Education. NO DEPOSIT will be collected this year. However, a child referred for Enhancement Summer School should be available for the entire 3-week, 12-day program. Students who can not attend all 12 days will not be registered.

If your child received a wait list letter you will be contacted by phone or email during the month of June when a space opens up and your child can be registered. If, by the first day of summer school your child has not been registered, and you still wish him/her to attend, you can bring him/her to the school at 9:30 am. At that time, registered students who have not shown up for school will have their spots re-assigned to wait list students who are in attendance. Please note, we cannot guarantee a spot for every wait list student who comes the first day. Availability will depend solely on the attendance of previously registered students
