We’re excited to host School Break Programs exclusive to the elementary aged students of Summit School District. Each day of programming will have a unique curriculum theme. The day's activities will be differentiated for elementary aged students so that everyone in the program has the opportunity to learn and grow.
January 15 - Newton’s Physics Workshop
Throughout the day students will explore Newton's Laws of Physics. Students will participate both inside and outside. This means that students should be prepared with snow gear along with comfortable attire for inside activities. You can receive a full packing list here.
