SUMMER CAMP NEWS!

Getting Ready Camp is designed to introduce and refresh students in the areas of Language Arts, Math and Science. The enrichment based program includes learning games, technology and art. The youngest students (TK and K) are also introduced to the classroom setting, routines and procedures at Laurel Hall.
