Latham students and school staff are ready for Summertide 2011, Latham’s 10th specialized Summer Program. This summer will combine classroom academics in the morning with activities in the afternoon that combine learning with fun. This year a new class will be added to the morning studies of reading, math and writing: Interactive Learning with Promethean Boards.

In this class, students will use smart boards, which all classrooms will be equipped with, to study topics such as internet safety, internet etiquette and the use of search engines for learning and leisure. Students will also use these smart boards during morning academics for interactive learning. The afternoons will have students in the community doing Community Service, visiting places of business for Vocational Exploration, and visiting the beautiful waters of Cape Cod for a Science Class that uses the beaches, bays, streams and vernal pools of the Cape as a laboratory for understanding the importance of water to the proper functioning of planet earth. Field trips will include an OceanQuest cruise to collect items from the sea, Mudflat Mania at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History and a visit to Waquoit Bay Natural Estuarine Research Reserve. As always, one afternoon a week will be spent swimming! When not off campus, students will explore such topics as Japanese Art, Summer Theater, Pottery Making and Reading Adventures.

Staff and students hope this will be a summer to remember!
