Valley View School welcomed six students at the start of the Summer Program on July 10th. While therapeutic and academic engagement is a constant at the school, the Summer Program features a more relaxed structure and focuses on a wide variety of enjoyable activities. The summer schedule is structured and packed with field trips around Massachusetts, accelerated reading and math as well as newly added skills-based classes like cooking, nutrition, 3D printing technology, environmental education, music, creative writing and art illustration.
Dr. Thomas Nowak, Executive Director, said, "It is exciting to have more students enroll in our school. I am passionate about physical activity for the students and have had a chance to get to know the students through pick-up basketball games and our fitness club." Nowak went on to say, "The boys at Valley View are active, engaged and experientially learning in the summer and all year long." The summer program ends on August 18th, but the fun and learning will not. The traditional academic subjects with academic support will begin again on September 7th. However, the activities like tennis, hiking, fishing, boating, camping, skateboarding and soccer will occur all year long.
