2020 June Term

We know that this spring has been tiring and difficult for many of you as you try to balance your child's remote learning and your other professional and personal responsibilities. We are happy to be able to offer this optional June Term for your child at no cost to you.  We hope these extra school days will engage your child and extend their learning while giving them the social interactions with their peers that all children crave.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • When will the June Term take place?
    • ​​The June Term will occur June 4-30th.  We will be using the first three days in June for teachers to collaborate, plan, and prepare materials for your child. We plan to use Tuesday, June 30, for a Student Materials Return.
  • What will students learn?
    • We will organize each week around a theme. In Primary, each week will have a fun summer theme: bugs, under the sea, camping, and rainbow colors.  In Lower Elementary, each theme will revolve around the outdoors and camping: map skills, plants and animals, the moon, and stars and celebrations.  In Upper Elementary, students will learn about inventions and businesses. Themes will drive the reading and writing lessons as well as a hands-on component.  Teachers will also provide lessons to review and extend math learning.
  • Who will teach the June Term?
    • We are finalizing the June Term teaching roster based on the availability of teachers. Not every teacher will be available due to personal reasons and family commitments. We consider it an academic camp that will enhance your child's learning.
  • When will June Term Material Pick-up take place?
    • ​​On Wednesday, June 3, we will hold a drop off and pick-up day. There will be a Student Materials Return for items such as books and devices used during the 2019-2020 school year remote learning. In addition, Families can pick up student belongings left at school in March.  Students registered for the June term can pick up all materials needed for the month on June 3.  We will send a finalized email containing more specific details and a schedule about the June 3 Drop Off and Pick Up Day soon. The logistics will be similar to the student materials pick-up day that we conducted in March.
  • What will the June Term schedule be like?
    • There will be a combination of live and recorded sessions Monday through Friday. The length will vary by department. Times will vary according to the number of students participating. See the sample schedules below.
  • Can we sign up for part of the month?
    • Because the lessons build upon each other, starting in the middle of the term would be difficult. If you have special circumstances such as a student receiving outside tutoring in one subject, but not the others. We may accommodate exceptions.  Please email Principal, Melissa Sherman, if you have questions.
  • How will Fay group students?
    • We will group students with similar-aged peers according to your child's current grade level and department. 
  • Will the June Term be graded?
    • We will not grade the June Term, nor will it impact any progress reporting.
