Summer Academic Review &

Enrichment Program

(JK-8)


Introduction


Lynn-Rose Heights is offering a half-day summer online academic learning program for grades JK – 8 in the subject areas of mathematics and language. Students enrolled in this program benefit greatly from this supplemental learning online. Families often seek online elementary schools because they offer a great deal of flexibility with regards to adhering to educational standards. Our program encourages self-paced learning, allowing students to progress through their chosen subject area at their own pace. Those who need additional support will spend time reviewing concepts and topics within math or language to further strengthen their knowledge and understanding. Students who have mastered the core concepts for their appropriate grade will be provided with enrichment and "reach ahead" material, thus giving them a head start when they enter the next grade in September. Students can choose to enrol in one course or in both language and math courses to supplement the offerings at their brick-and-mortar schools.


Costs and Timings

The cost is $220.00 bi-weekly per course, regardless of attendance. No daily rates or accommodations. There is a $50.00 non-refundable deposit that is required upon registration to secure a spot in the classroom. The language course runs from 9:00am – 12:00pm while the math course runs from 1:00 – 4:00pm, Monday through Friday, from June 22, 2020 – August 28, 2020. These fun sessions run for 3 hours daily with a one-hour interactive live component with the subject teacher via Zoom meetings. Those enrolled earn a course completion certificate every two weeks. Please fill in the registration form on this page, along with your payment, to secure a spot for our online summer camp program.


FAQ

How do students socialize during the course?

Online students have Lynn-Rose accounts created for them and are able to socialize just like they do traditionally with their school peers. Students may attend google hangout meeting sessions with their friends and participate in zoom meetings where they can see other students live and face to face. Students may form discussion groups and meet regularly. These are some of the ways to get to know one another better and to study together.


How are they assessed?

Students turn in homework and daily practice activities, complete projects, take quizzes and tests, and write assignments, all which is closely monitored by the teacher. Work may be submitted via email or through course management systems, such as Google Classrooms. Teachers provide ongoing assessment and evaluation that is fair, transparent, and equitable, and give students multiple opportunities for growth. Teachers also communicate with students and parents weekly to ensure formative feedback is present. Communication is done through zoom meetings, phone calls, and emails.


How do online students get individualized attention?

Students build on their learning skills through ongoing interactions with the teacher and their classmates. Teachers play a vital role in giving students the attention they need. They are critical to providing structure, guidance, and motivation as students learn at their own pace through the curriculum. Students receive ongoing support from their online teachers via tools such as video conferencing, discussion posts, email, or telephone in order to help them progress in the different subject areas at their own pace. Online students get a customized and proprietary learning approach that focuses on the right areas to help them progress at a pace that they are comfortable with.


How is safety ensured in an online environment?

We remain committed to our goal of providing a firm foundation of academic excellence and equity, with effective teachers to nurture the knowledge, skills and ethics required for responsible citizenship. Proper management of time and completion of tasks is essential. Students are encouraged to find appropriate times to socialize online outside of school instructional/learning time. In addition, students must remember to adhere to the LR Code of Conduct at all times. We promote a safe environment that allows students to openly discuss any problems or concerns they may have with their peers or in their online classrooms.



What Do Online Elementary School Students Learn?

Lynn Rose covers the core courses and concepts as outlined The Ontario Curriculum, although there is flexibility in topics and delivery methods.
