Summer School 2016

Children of Peace School will have a summer school program for students in grades Pre-K – 8th. The program will run for six weeks from June 27th to August 5th.

The program will be divided into two sessions:

  • Morning session from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.
  • Afternoon session from 12:30 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. (Afternoon session is optional)

The morning session will be structured to provide enrichment instruction or remedial instruction for students who need reinforcement of skills in the areas of language, reading, writing, and math.

The afternoon session will be structured to provide extra-curricular activities for students who need extended day services. Students in the afternoon session will participate in a variety of activities from arts and crafts, iPad usage, active play as well as cooking. Students in the afternoon will also need to bring a lunch.

Feed My Starving Children

During Lent we encourage students to participate in community service projects. On March 21st, the students in grades 5-8 will be going to Aurora to participate in Feed My Starving Children.

Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a Christian non-profit organization committed to feeding God’s children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: volunteers hand-pack meals specially formulated for malnourished children, and send them to partners around the world where they’re used to operate orphanages, schools, clinics and feeding programs to break the cycle of poverty. FMSC food has reached more than 70 countries in its history.

We are going to need adult volunteers to participate with our students. Perhaps you are looking for a service project for yourself this Lenten season, please consider joining us. We would appreciate your help even if your child’s class is not going. You will participate in an inspiring prayerful event.
