PEF Summer Enrichment Program
PEF's Summer Enrichment Program is your summertime solution!
Learn to cook, explore a new language, program a robot, design with 3D printers, and so much more.
What a Great Summer!
The Pasadena Educational Foundation's popular program continues in its twelfth year of providing summer enrichment classes to K-12 students.
This year, the program will be at a few new site locations around Pasadena including McKinley (K-8), Don Benito (K-6), and District Headquarters (9-12). We will return to both Franklin (K-6) and Roosevelt (K-6). Our popular dual language programs can be found at Franklin and Roosevelt for Spanish and Don Benito for Mandarin.
All elementary sites will host the self-contained Introduction to Kindergarten and Introduction to First Grade classes for incoming Kindergarten and first grade students (K-1). These classes are a fun introduction to school and a great way for young learners to stay engaged over the summer. Classes will run the full 3 blocks from 8-12pm with one teacher.
For students grades 2-8, there are a variety of fun-filled learning and enrichment opportunities. Students choose 3 blocks of classes that run from 8-12pm. Some of the great classes offered include cooking, robotics, 3-D printing, art studio, math, science and more.
For the high school students grades 9-12, we are offering a new format of classes that start a little later at 9am and run till 12pm Monday through Thursday. In partnership with the College Access Plan, students will prepare for both the SAT and ACT. We are also offering a Graphic Design class that will help students get ahead with a great portfolio, while having fun practicing new skills. This course will incorporate 3-D printing and computers to offer the latest technologies for design. PEF will not be offering for credit classes this year.
We hope you can join us for a fun-filled summer of learning and exploration!
