Summer Pals 2015: Grades K-1

Drury University and Springfield Public Schools work together to sponsor a summer experience for gifted students. Summer Pals is a program for grades K-1. (Students register by current grade). Classes are held from 8:15 to 11:15 a.m., June 15-26, 2015 (Monday through Friday) at Weller Elementary. Class size is limited to 16 students. A class with fewer than six students applying may be cancelled.

Courses are taught by highly qualified, effective teachers who understand and use both enrichment and acceleration. Courses are hands-on, activity-oriented, and highly motivating.

The goals of Summer Pals are:

  1. To provide opportunities for students to interact with peers of similar academic abilities and interests.
  2. To encourage students to use their intellectual and creative abilities.
  3. To allow students to pursue areas of interest they would not have a chance to study elsewhere.
