Summer, a season of enrichment and exploration

As the school year draws to a close, Waseca Public Schools is gearing up for an exciting summer with activities aimed at academic enrichment, physical fitness, and exploration. From targeted instruction in core subjects to athletic endeavors, Waseca students and residents have multiple options for summer.
For elementary students, the summer focus remains on reinforcing essential skills in math and reading, aligned with grade-level standards. Through tailored instruction and small group interventions, educators are dedicated to ensuring that every student receives the support they need to thrive academically and socially. 
One highlight of the summer program is the series of local field trips designed to ignite curiosity and foster experiential learning among students. These offer invaluable opportunities for exploration and discovery beyond the confines of the classroom, enriching the educational experience.
At the junior high, the offerings are also diverse and engaging. Students can receive support in multiple subjects. Supplementing classroom learning are Thursday field trips to educational destinations, providing students with firsthand exposure to real-world applications of their studies. For senior high students in need of credit recovery, comprehensive support is available across various subjects, including English, Science, Mathematics, and Social Studies. 
Special education students eligible for Extended School Year Services will benefit from tailored programs designed to meet their unique needs and foster continued growth and development.
Beyond academics, Waseca Public Schools is proud to offer a wide array of extracurricular activities to keep students active and engaged throughout the summer months. From strength and conditioning sessions led by our coaches to team sports like football, basketball, volleyball, soccer, baseball, and softball, there's something for everyone to enjoy.
Moreover, community education options abound. The overwhelming demand for K-6 programs reflects the community's enthusiasm for these opportunities.
Exciting new classes introduced this summer include Hiking day at Courthouse Park, Disc Golf, Ninja Gymnastics, and various art classes, catering to diverse interests and passions. Jay’s Nest child care is also a large part of our youth programming. 
Additionally, swimming lessons offered at eight different levels demonstrate the district's commitment to promoting water safety and proficiency among its students. With sessions filling up fast, the addition of new lifeguards and enhanced training ensures a quality learning experience for all participants.
As summer approaches, Waseca Public Schools will continue in its mission to prepare learners to thrive in an ever-changing world. With a diverse array of academic, athletic, and community education opportunities on offer, the stage is set for a summer of exploration and excitement in Waseca.
