• We are excited to announce the dates for this year’s summer enrichment program! Last year, Summer Ignite focused on community relationships and re-engaging students in learning following virtual learning. This year, Summer Ignite will provide rigorous and engaging learning opportunities for our students, including topics to address physical and social-emotional health, allowing for continued progress towards key standards in preparation for next school year.

    This year’s program will feature two sessions: 

    Session 1: June 6-30, Monday-Thursday

    8 a.m. to 12 p.m. 


    Session 2: Transition week*

    Incoming kindergarten students with last names

    July 25- Last Names A-M

    July 26- Last Names N-Z

    8 a.m. to 12 p.m. 

    Who should attend Summer Ignite at Veterans Park Elementary?

    Students who need extra learning opportunities and classroom time to get ready for the 2022-23 school year will be given first priority to attend Session 1 of Summer Ignite.The focus will be on helping students who are achieving below the 20th percentile prepare for next year. 

    This may include students who have not shown mastery of reading or math standards for their grade level or whose engagement with learning has been inconsistent throughout the school year.

    Students who will be entering Kindergarten in August are eligible for Session 2 of Summer Ignite at VPE, called Transition Week. Transition Week is a great way for students to get prepared and excited as they enter our doors for the first time and begin their academic journey! 

    *Current fifth grade students are eligible to attend Transition Week at the middle school they will be attending next school year. If you are a fifth grade parent, be on the lookout for information from the program coordinator at your child’s future middle school. You can also find contact information for summer learning coordinators at fcps.net/ignite.

    If your child is eligible for Summer Ignite you will receive more information regarding registration for summer learning in the upcoming weeks.

    Please stay tuned for more details regarding summer enrichment soon!
