Friends and Families:
As we near two full months of the stay at home order, we wanted to reach out and see how everyone is doing. Understandably, some of us may be pulling our hair out. There are uncertainties surrounding education with no clear answers in sight; also with youth sports and parks shut down, when will our kids go back to being kids again? We aren’t here to predict the answers, but we have always prided ourselves on providing opportunities to the Shafter community. We are still planning for the very hour we can all get back together and seeking out other means that align with the boundaries currently in place. However, we have teamed up with Bakersfield Baseball Academy to bring a baseball/softball camp right to your own backyard! The best part, you have the chance to enroll absolutely FREE.
Students grades K-5 are invited to enroll into the camp. The camp involves an academic portion and enrichment (the baseball/softball camp) portion. The Summer Academic & Enrichment Program we are offering is a great opportunity to catch-up and reinforce schooling that was missed this year through Elite Academic, a tuition-free public charter school. Students will need to complete two short workbooks that provide a review of the grade completed during the 2019-2020 school year. Participation in the academic portion provides the opportunity for us to fund the equipment and coaching for the enrichment camp. For more information on the academic program check out this video: https://vimeo.com/398942269/ef9a69c4f5
Enrollment for the program ends on May 22nd and spots in the baseball/softball camp are limited due to the need to purchase and provide equipment to each and every student athlete. The summer session will begin on July 1st and conclude August 8th. Each student will be assigned a credentialed teacher from Bakersfield or Shafter to provide tutoring and academic advising as they complete their workbooks.
