Sanford offers a variety of summer programs for students entering PreK– Grade 4. It's crucial to keep our young minds actively engaged in all aspects of learning, both academic and social/emotional. Our enrichment camps provide the perfect opportunity for children to practice and gain a greater confidence in academics, as well as try new things and potentially develop new passions.
We are excited to offer a before care (7:30AM - 9:00AM) program this summer. If needed, please use the Before Care link to the right of this page to register for the week's needed.

With playful hands and busy minds, we will help your child continue to build the confidence needed to grow and soar in-and-out of the classroom.

Attention first graders! The key to lifelong academic success: reading, writing, and mathematics. Individualizing the learning experience is of utmost priority to ensure your child is getting exactly what he or she needs to soar. When students are not working with the teacher in their small group, they rotate among a variety of learning stations that reinforce the daily lessons, promote independence, and encourage problem-solving.
Jump into summer with great books, engaging math projects, and a boatload of ideas for creative writings! This fun-filled class will focus on reading comprehension strategies, organizing and editing stories, and complex mathematical operations such as subtraction with regrouping and the basics of multiplication. Brain breaks will be needed and Mrs. Elia is ready to take the students on nature walks, through our beautiful sunny hills, and also kick around the soccer ball or swing on the swings with all who love to play.
Novels, research, and fractions, oh my! When transitioning from learning to read, to reading to learn it is important to solidify the skills of annotation and taking book notes to ensure understanding. Mrs. Pizzala is excited to introduce this technique to those bridging from elementary style books to more sophisticated chapter books. Students will also be taught numerous writing techniques which they will implement while constructing a piece they are proud to call their own! Finally, hands-on math lessons will be taught with emphasis on fractions, decimals, and long division! In this class learning will simply come to life!
