SD43’s 2017 Summer Learning program had another very successful year. Over 6300 students from Grade 1 through 12 enrolled in courses hosted at thirteen school locations throughout the Tri-Cities, with very high completion rates for students. Summer Learning also engaged with the community to raise $3300 for BC Wildfire Relief, 2000+ food items for the SHARE Food Bank, and used sporting good donations to Kidsport.
Planning is already under way for Summer 2018, please check back here starting in January 2018 for registration and programming dates
