Summer Learning 2018

This year, we have a new Summer Learning Guide which provides a variety of summer learning opportunities to engage all LaPerche students.  Take some time to explore it with your child.
Students who complete their summer learning and return the VERIFICATION FORM by Friday, September 14 will be invited to an Outdoor Fun Festival which will take place during school on Friday, September 21.  
Please feel free to email with any questions. I hope you and your family have a safe, relaxing and fun-filled summer break!
