summer school studentWelcome to Summer School 2022


Summer School at OSSD is over for the year, but it sure didn't feel like school. Everyone had such a great time learning new concepts, making new friends, and sharpening their academic prowess. 

We started each day at 8:00 with breakfast before breaking into various groups for our daily activities. Then we gathered back together from 11:30 - noon for lunch and to share some stories and laughs. We owe a huge THANK YOU to our food service program for providing these meals at no cost to our students!

Check out our photo page to see the fun for yourself.

Then take a look at some of the videos below to learn more about what our summer program is all about.

Our new Assistant Superintendent (and former Braintree Principal Heather Lawler) explains how the program got started and what we're doing to make sure we can keep it going into the future. 

She share's her thoughts on the program here:


 


OK, so who's that guy with the big smile and his arms folded?

That's Lance Madzey, RTCC's Digital Film Instructor. He'll tell you a little bit about the summer school program, and why kids are having so much fun!  (But seriously, how do you NOT have fun with a guy who can turn an ordinary day into a feature film?)

In this video, students got to meet with a writer from the Cartoon Network. I mean, how cool is that?

And in these videos, you can see some of the activities that are takling place. We know it sounds crazy, but this is one school "semester" that nobody wanted to see come to a close!
