Summer Camp was super fun. I learned a lot of things. My favorite was when we learned how to cook and make things.”Julianna Cayton

My teachers in summer camp taught me a lot of things like how to cook or play sports, My favorite classes were cooking and watching movies. In cooking class I made sushi, omelette, parfaits, and colored pancakes. The best parts of summer camp was when we played outdoors with water, did a play, received certificates, and made friends. .” – Angelie Donguines,

I decided to join the summer program because I thought it was fun. I like especially the iTech, iBuild, and iCount under Mr. Pangan.” – Tim, 9 years, incoming 4th grade

“I came here because I wanted to improve my confidence in dancing and leadership skills.” – Justin, 11 years old and an incoming 7th grade

Parents’ Review:

“I’ve enrolled my son for him to learn how to socialize with other kids.  So far, I’ve noticed he is learning how to be patient and be more creative.  At home, I’ve seen how Andre’s imagination has been enhanced with the activities done at school.  He especially likes playing with his Lego toys building different things.”  – Mrs. Mandel

“I enrolled Adriana to enhance how to interact with other kids.She enjoys learning a lot from the summer class.  She’s more conscious of what she eats and applies what she learns from her iEat Class.  She shares how important it is to check the calorie content from the labels of the food package.  From her iWatch class, she learned how to identify the characters and understand the story.  I am happy to know that they’re learning and playing games that kids do not play anymore.  She enjoys playing with us at home like pick up sticks and some board games like chinese checkers.  – Mrs. Sabinay
