Believe it or not summer is right around the corner! There continues to be a need for finding engaging summer opportunities that provide students who struggle with social-emotional needs with structured supports for the upcoming summer break. Coulee Connections Alternative School is offering a six-week program and is currently seeking referrals for our Outlook Summer School program.
Outlook Summer School will take place six consecutive weeks from June 26th through August 4th. Programming runs Monday through Friday from 8am-2pm and will be geared toward assisting students in building a more secure pattern of social-emotional management. These skills will provide a foundation for educational success going into the school year. Math, language arts, and STEM instruction will be creatively integrated into a variety of developmentally aligned outdoor educational experiences. Academic instruction will be led by our certified teachers and highly effective teams. Referrals are for students ages 5-16. Programming will provide each student with breakfast, lunch and snacks. Transportation will be provided by parents/school district. Due to the high level of interest, participant slot will be committed for the entire 6 weeks.
As part of programming, we are offering a class for qualified 11-16 year old students that will culminate in week 5, with a Expedition to the Turtle Flambeau, led by our Outlook Excursion team. SEL and academic skills progression will be integrated into the weekly schedule leading up to the excursion.
Outlook Summer School Program also includes a variety of activities designed to assist school teams and parents in bridging these skills back into their school and families. We have seen great things come from invested teams who have utilized the Outlook Summer School as a experiential training tool. Interested parties should contact us ASAP to discuss the structuring of this opportunity.
We have partnered with schools/families that have utilized funding sources of:
- Extended School Year (ESY)
- Mental Health Grant Dollars
- Community Foundations
- Children’s Miracle Network Grant Scholarship (Must meet specific criteria)
