Each year, LAEF’s Summer Enrichment Institute (SEI) is an essential part of summer for Los Al parents and students alike, offering fun and educational learning opportunities for students in grades TK-12, and a much-needed break for their parents. Following an unprecedented school year and Virtual SEI last year due to COVID-19, kids and teachers were thrilled to come together at Rossmoor Elementary School and McAuliffe Middle School for in-person enrichment.
LAEF’s first session of SEI was launched on June 28 and Session 2 began on July 12, offering 120 fun and academic enrichment classes to more than 600 students from TK – 8th grade. Session 2 wraps up on July 23.
Elementary students enjoyed Jumpstart classes for TK-5th grade, It’s STEAM-tastic, Wonderful World of Science, Computer Literacy and Coding, Musical Theater, Summer Food Exploration, Spanish, French, Cheerleading, Sports Wheel, Percussion Playground, martial arts and so much more! Middle School offerings included Adulting 101, Coding and Game Creation, Engineering and Robotics, The Wonderful World of Science and Get Organized.
“We are so excited to give families the opportunity to help their kids transition back into the classroom following a difficult school year,” stated Carrie Logue, LAEF Executive Director. “We are thrilled to experience a record number of participants this summer and are always committed to providing enrichment opportunities for every Los Al student, whether or not their family can afford the class fees. LAEF was proud to enrich the learning experience of 67 additional students this summer through tuition scholarships made possible by generous donors like the Roosters Foundation of Orange County and the Miller Foundation,” she concluded.
