SummerQuest Summer Learning Program in Full Swing!
It’s not too late to register for SummerQuest!
You can use the reading log to earn weekly raffle tickets for great prizes at the end of the summer.
We have also added the new Patch Power program this year, where you can earn patches just like Scout badges when you complete four activities. We have six patches this summer: Caped Avenger, Board Gaming Genius, Epic Wizard, Globetrotter, Interstellar Seeker, and Mad Chef. Attending designated programs counts towards earning the patch, or you can do the activities on your own.
Ms. Maureen is back for Wednesday’s July with story times for pre-K through 2. These programs provide activities to support the Patch Power activities.
You can still register for July programs, including a music composing mini-camp for grades 6-8, Construction Club, and Book Bingo. You can see the entire schedule at our Event Calendar.
The Garrison Carida of the 501st Battalion helped us kick-off SummerQuest.
