Various Times Throughout the Summer
District 218 Summer Enhancement Courses are two-day, non-credit classes that expose students to exciting and fun subjects that are offered at all schools. A few examples that we offered last year were “Fishing 101…Let’s Have Fun!!!!”, “Basic Welding” and “jumpstART: Caffeine for the Creative Mind.” Summer Enhancement Courses are based on fun, active and engaging topics that 100% of the students reported they enjoyed. Try one out!
