Under the direction of Superintendent, Dr. Chris Zublionis, Interim Assistant Superintendent for Instruction, Dr. Carol Smyth, IB/AP Coordinator, Dr. Kerri Titone, and Physical Education teacher Ms. Megan McCormack, the 2022 North Shore Schools Summer Experience began on July 11, 2022.

Thank you to Ms. McCormack, Dr. Titone, and our faculty members for organizing such a great experience!  This is such a great example of how the needs of our students and the feedback from our parents, drive our programming!”

Close to 400 students, in Grades K-9, happily participate outdoors in a wide variety of fun and educational free classes including Math Blast, Creative Writing, Public Speaking, Gardening, Science & Wilderness: Outdoor Wonder, Game Time -The Power of Words, Rhymes and Songs Through Play!, Write My Own Story, Multi-Sports, Fitness Fun & Healthy Habits, Getting Ready for Algebra and Geometry, Viking Values, Ukulele, Robotics, Theater, Band, Song Writing and Performance, and Yoga.

Ms. McCormack said, “Providing these opportunities give our students endless possibilities to learn, explore, and imagine throughout the summer. This amazing program offers an array of experiences where our dedicated faculty and staff can collaborate and innovate ways to reach all learners. Students have the ability to shine and interact with peers, all while having lots of fun!”  

From the second week in July through early August 2022, North Shore students will be engaged daily while making new friends and positive memories. A special “thank you” goes out to the team made up of security guards, aides, custodial staff, nurses, and teachers who were eager to get the program started and continue to make it run smoothly.

Ms. McCormack concluded by saying, “It is a total group effort, and we are so appreciative. Many thanks to the custodial crew for maintaining the campus and fields. The program would not be as successful without the support of Dr. Zublionis, Dr. Smyth, Dr. Titone, Ms. Kulikowsky, and the Board of Education, we greatly appreciate all you do for our schools.”
