Have you heard about Challenger Adventureland? During our summer school program, children will go on imaginary trips each week as they learn and review phonics, numbers, and so much more. Current preschoolers (including those in all-day classes) need to re-enroll for summer. Classes begin June 23. See your campus office for details.
