May 14, 2021Dear Aliquippa Elementary Families: As we near the end of this school year, we want to thank you for all the adjustments you had to make as a caregiver of a school-aged child during this pandemic. With so many changes during this past school year, we know it hasn’t been easy. We also know the impact that the pandemic has had on our students has been great. Therefore, we have planned a FREE summer program to work with as many K-3rd grade students as possible. This will be in-person, with our teachers, and with limited use of technology. We have planned a program which will help recover skills in both reading and mathematics while keeping the day fun and interactive. Students will receive breakfast and lunch while attending the program. Transportation will also be provided. (Please click "MORE+")
