Bridge Boston is committed to preventing summer slide or the loss of academic skills by students over the summer break. The summer program also ensures that our children benefit from an additional month of healthy meals and enriching educational and community-building activities.
Each morning, students receive academic instruction, with blocks dedicated to literacy, math, reading, art, music, and writing. Students enjoyed multiple recesses each day, as well as nutritious breakfasts, snacks and lunches. After lunch students participated in engaging learning activities and field trips.
The Summer Program also provides Bridge Boston with a way of fulfilling our responsibility to students on Individualized Education Plans (IEPs), some of whom have summer program attendance specified as part of their IEP. Rather than having to send them to a different environment for a short period of time during the summer, our summer program enables us to instruct these special education students in a manner that is consistent with the rest of their academic year.
