Registration is now open for the Coronado Schools Foundation STEAM Summer Enrichment Program. The two-week lineup of courses beginning June 17th promises to launch the summer season with education focused for active minds.
Open to all students’ grades TK-12, Coronado Summer Enrichment offers a comprehensive suite of classes following a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) curriculum. Positioned as innovative & interactive classes taught by credentialed teachers in a small group setting, the 2019 offerings will feature favorites from prior years as well as new classes and teachers.
CSF Summer Enrichment Principal Kathy Shady is enthusiastic about the 2019 program and looks forward to welcoming all. “We are so excited to bring back our Summer Enrichment program for the 8th year,” says Kathy. “We are bringing back a lot of the favorite teachers and classes like Jump, Start, Kindergarten, Cooks Around the World, Coronado Sleuths (formerly known as Island Detectives) and Chef’s Dinner. We are also introducing some new fun and exciting classes like Art in the Community, Hola Spanish, and Breaking the Code. I can’t wait to see all of the excited faces on June 17th.”
CSF Project Coordinator Laura Galdorisi O’Sullivan describes the addition of classes as being responsive to demand. “Our parents’ surveys last year showed a high interest in offering these courses in our enrichment program for this year,” says Laura, “so we are pleased to have such wonderful and experienced teachers available to lead them.”
O’Sullivan goes on to detail some of the new summer enrichment faculty. “Abby Lund is a new teacher for us this year for Introduction to Robotics,” says Laura. “She runs the very popular STEAM Lego Club during the school year at Village Elementary. We are thrilled to be able to offer this course in the summer.”
Two other new-to-CSF Summer Enrichment teachers this year are Jessica DiGrazia (Hands-On Science) and Rachel Cobb (Hola Spanish).
Returning to the Summer Enrichment Program in 2019 is Village Elementary Visual and Performing Arts teacher, Cyndi Fuhrmann. Cyndi praises the summer enrichment program for offering a unique small-group environment that fosters teamwork and close collaboration. “It is so much fun to work with small groups of kids doing something they are really interested in,” says Fuhrmann. “Everyone gets to know each other, and they learn to work together really well.”
Fuhrmann will teach a range of classes including Art from the Heart, I Love to Paint, I Love to Dance, and Sing Dance Create.
