Summer school in Steelville kicks off this month

• SHS classes begin in June, SES and SMS in July
    Steelville students will be able to participate in summer school but plans this year will be somewhat different as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

    The district is planning onsite learning opportunities that will conform to social distancing guidelines for elementary and middle school students. High school Health and Personal Finance classes will be offered virtually.
    Elementary and middle school classes will be available for four weeks, from July 6-31. Lunch and breakfast will be provided each day.
    The elementary will have weekly summer sessions for all grade levels (pre-K through fourth grade). Students are welcome to attend all four weeks, or they can choose the weeks that fit their schedule. Registration forms will go out this week. The first week’s theme is “Fair Week,” and all lessons will be built around the Crawford County Fair theme: “Sew It, Show It, Grow It.” School staff hope to be able to take some local field trips that connect to the fair unit. This year’s fair was officially canceled on Monday.
    The middle school will have half-day, week-long, camp-like classes. Students can sign up for as many as they wish to take. Some of the classes offered will be STEM/Science, PE, Cooking with Chemistry, Tinkercad/Coding, Project Math, and a cooking class.
    At the high school, Health and Personal Finance will be offered virtually from June 8 to 19. The platform is Google Classroom, and teachers will be posting recorded lessons and videos daily along with work for students to complete.
    High school agriculture students can also participate in a Supervised Agriculture Experience (SAE) under the direction of ag teachers in June. Students will need to log 50 hours per .5 credit with summer SAE projects. Advisors will conduct two visits to monitor students' projects. Students will have a log sheet for time and record books.
    The high school is also planning for in-seat classes in August, with more information on those to be released later this month.
