“Summer of Fun” is the theme of the AAPS Summer ESL Academy (SESLA) which serves multilingual students entering grades 4-8.

During this three-week program at Huron High School ending July 9, students engage in a project-based curriculum that supports math, literacy, and English language skills.

SESLA staff teach students how to do the Macarena during Music Day recently.

A typical schedule in the 4.5-hour day included breakfast in the classroom, structured games, morning meeting, academic blocks with a literacy and math focus, and a closing circle.
