D.C. Everest Area School District
Summer School planning begins
The D.C. Everest Area School District will run a morning kindergarten through eighth grade summer school program this year from June 17 to July 19.
To best meet the needs of students and families, the summer calendar has been adjusted. Students will have one week off after the school year ends and the week of July 4 off as well.
The curriculum places great emphasis on reading, writing and mathematics for all students, with each student taking at least one class in those areas. A variety of courses are offered for students, and the Kindergarten Jump-Start is available for incoming kindergarten students.
Registration information will be sent home with students in March and will be available on the district website.
