Welcome to Summer
Summer hours have officially begun. We have morning, afternoon, and evening hours to meet the needs of your family during this busy time of year. Summer hours will run from now through August.
Celebrate Summer Colors and Math Fun!
Summer vibes are in the air, and we're celebrating all the vibrant colors that come with sunny days! Grab your favorite coloring supplies (and your math skills!) and let's start coloring. First, select the My Colorful Summer activity packet below that fits you best:
Then, flex those math muscles and solve the math problems listed in your packet—each problem has a color that goes with it. Find your answers on the picture and fill in the spaces with the matching color to bring the image to life! Bring your completed pages to your next session to get a bonus spin of the prize wheel -- we'll even display your masterpieces in the center!
Complete the problem of the week* and earn a ticket for the this month's gift card raffle. See below for a preview of this week's problem. Just ask an instructor at your next visit for a worksheet.
Parents, join in the fun by helping your student get started!

Plus, a "B" or above in math on report cards earns a bonus spin of the wheel!
