3 R’s: Academic Workshops in Preparation for the New School Year

The 3 R’s workshops will offer students the opportunity to review and reinforce key academic skills. Daily instruction of important concepts in mathematics and language arts will be supplemented with enriching opportunities to explore history, science, Spanish, art, and reading. There will also be time for snacks and socializing each morning.*

Grymes teachers will lead all workshops. Grade levels may be combined depending on enrollment.

*See below for more information regarding health and safety measures that will be put in place to protect our students and faculty.


Our goals for the program are threefold: (1) Ensure academic preparedness for the new school year, (2) encourage appropriate social interactions with peers, and (3) practice following new health and safety protocols in a safe, supportive environment.
