Summertime Fun: School!

MNPS Virtual School Summer time is here! The last day of school is this Friday, which is a half-day for everyone.

We’re plenty excited for the end of the year – even though we’ll still be at work every day in Central Office – and want you to enjoy your summer. Thankfully, “enjoying summer” can also involve staying engaged in school and learning.

Don’t groan. It’s true. And can be fun.

What will you be doing this summer? Sleeping in? Comic book movies? Working?

Here’s an idea: spend part of your summer getting ahead or making up credits for high school.

MNPS Virtual School is offering twenty (20!) high school courses this summer for half and full credit. They are open to all MNPS high schoolers and even eighth grades who want a head start. Classes start May 29, and final exams start July 22.

Courses include:

  • Algebra I & II
  • Geometry
  • Liberal Arts Math
  • English I, II, III & IV
  • Physical Science
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • U.S. History
  • World History
  • Government & Economics
  • Personal Finance
  • Psychology & Sociology
  • Spanish I & II
  • P.E.
  • Lifetime Wellness

All courses will be taken online, but there will be times when you have to actually come to school. Good thing Virtual School has a newly renovated and dedicated  space for learning IRL.

Full details on the Summer Success Program are over on the Virtual School website. Go there and sign up. What else have you got to do this summer?
