Summer at USES!

Our club48 students selling iced tea and lemonade at last year's 2023 Entrepreneurs Market.

We look forward to another fantastic summer at USES. Our programming and activities aim to engage all children in our Early Childhood Education (ECE) and club48 classrooms.

For our infants through Pre-Kindergarten students, we will be focusing on the themes of Growing, Underwater Life, and Summer and Community. Students will be learning about underwater animals and sea life while they enjoy lots of water play in our courtyard. In addition, our ECE classrooms will be participating in the Boston-based TADpole 10 program starting in July.

TADpole 10 is offered to families and non-profits in the area to support the pursuit of healthy and educational activities throughout the summer. The program is sponsored by the Highland Street Foundation and runs once a week featuring storytellers, book giveaways and fun activities for children on the Boston Common.

Our club48 programming (for children in kindergarten to 6th grade) will have six sessions, each with a different theme. Our first theme will be our Explore Boston session which includes a trip to View Boston to observe the city from 52 floors up. We will then move into a Farm to Table session where students will learn about where our food comes from, and healthy eating habits. Our next session titled "Who done it?" will focus on investigating, decoding, and solving multiple puzzles and riddles leading to solving a final mystery. The programming will round out the summer with the final three sessions: Entrepreneurs Market, Performing Arts, and Carnival Science sessions.

All classrooms, both ECE and club48, will be involved in our USES Vegetable Garden project where they will learn about starting seeds, observing the growing process, and how to transition their seeds to our outside beds so they can tend, observe, harvest and enjoy in the fall.
