APS Summer Learning Adventure:  

Summer Learning Adventure (SLA) is a free, 19 day outdoor-themed enrichment program for currently enrolled Kindergartner through 5th grade APS students during the 2021-2022 school year.

Our Kinder through 2nd grade program theme is NM Wild! We explore literacy, math, science, social studies, and the arts while emphasizing New Mexico plants, animals, habitats, aquatics, and geology. We will be outdoors daily, learning in a camp-like setting using project-based, hands-on learning.

Our 3rd through 5th grade program theme is Making Connections: Be Super Arts Smart! Join us for visual and performing arts enrichment this summer...students will work with Fine Arts teachers to explore their superpower of creativity.

Our goal is to provide a rich and engaging program that helps students learn, practice, and retain skills throughout the summer. We expect students to learn and try new things, get messy, and engage with activities that will inspire and challenge them in new ways!
