Summer School is Cool, Like For Real, FOR REAL!

Festus Summer School is Cool

It is that exciting time of year, full of hope and energy for a summer ahead.

My kiddos are pumped for another month of summer school in Festus. Like, for real, FOR REAL (FR, FR…is that what the kids are saying now!?…haha…now I’m trying to be that cool mom!)

In all honesty, though, my kids have had a blast with their past experiences with the Festus Summer Academy.

Taking place each summer for just one month,  my daughter and son have both LOVED every itty-bitty second of this different kind of “school.”

Not just for children who need more academic help, Festus offers what we would consider more of a “summer camp” feel, full of amusing explorations, open to all children in the district.

My kids have reported that there is an entertaining, yet relaxed, energy.

They say there is, “more freedom and adventures.” Each grade has unique and creative hands-on activities, challenges, field trips, and more.

This is a non-paid endorsement, proud to promote the education and opportunities available within OurFESTUS community!
