KTS Lower and Middle Programs
The Lower-Middle School Program
Grades 1 – 8, July 1 – August 9
Students often lose skills over extended school breaks. This year’s theme, Careers through the Curriculum, will be used to enhance instruction, field trips and special activities through each of the six weeks of The Learning Enrichment Program. Students in The Learning Enrichment Program are actively engaged in hands on, experiential theme based activities designed to reinforce skills in reading, writing and mathematics. Small groups allow for differentiated instruction, to help students maintain critical academic skills through reading of narrative and information texts, the dramatization of characters, creative writing and math activities. Using innovative and structured opportunities for social engagement, focus is placed on strengthening the students’ verbal and interactive skills with both peers and adults. Several learning options are available to meet family needs, including half day and full day programs as well as extended morning and afternoon services, at an additional cost. The Learning Enrichment Program offers, at an additional cost, Occupational Therapy (OT), Speech Language Therapy (SLP) and/or Social Work (SW) services.
Camp Bongo – An experiential learning camp for students in grades 2 – 7.
June 24 – June 28, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Getting GRIT through STEAM! (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) During this week-long camp, students will learn the value of perseverance through literature and STEAM (science, technology, engineering and math) We will focus on an inspirational story about a girl who learns to overcome and even celebrate her failures. This philosophy will help students throughout their school years, career, and life in general. Students will complete hands on ELA based activities– retelling, comparing, cause and effect, character evaluation, and vocabulary. Additionally, students will complete STEAM activities related to the story as well as others as they engage in the science, technology, arts, mathematical and engineering design process and they work both individually and on teams to problem solve.
August 12- August 16, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
In the morning, students ignite their passion for learning through a variety of multi-sensory academic activities as well as having an opportunity to practice problem solving and executive functioning skills. Every afternoon, students have the opportunity to enhance their learning within our community while exploring the awesome resources of the Washington, DC area through field trips and special guest visitors. These afternoons are also perfect opportunities to work on social skills in a supported setting.
