    Summer is right around the corner! Or at least, here at Edina Community Education, it is. We are always striving to provide you with the right mix of fun, enriching and globally and locally relevant activities that are in line with the EPS profile of a next generation learner. So no matter if they are four or fourteen, this summers line-up offers innovative experiences for your artists, techies, performers, movers and even the messy ones who like to dig in the dirt! Below are some of my favorites this year;

    Biking Adventures includes four days of biking excursions around town. Its a popular experience and full of adventures! New this year is a partnership with the Bicycle Alliance of MN who will provide complimentary bicycles and helmets that will make your life easier and make for a much safer ride for everyone!

    Whats up in the Garden: Harvest and Cook at South View is offered three times this summer in June, July and August. Register for one or all three because every month something new will be happening in the garden. Kids will learn how to maintain a summer garden, harvest seasonal vegetables and learn to incorporate them into healthy meals your whole family can enjoy.

    Archery- where nothing beats the thrill of hitting a bulls-eye and in our July camp, kids will learn how to hit it as well as all aspects of range safety and proper shooting techniques. This is a great sport for kids of all abilities and social skills a place where they can make new friends and be part of a team in a welcoming fun environment.

    If what you need is a variety of activities to beat that Im bored attitude, then check out our abundance of choices throughout this catalog and online at edina.thatscommnuityed.com. Pick and choose what you need and when you need it. Build a full week of cool activities for your child and we will make sure theyre safe and engaged every step of the way. Dont break the bank either! We offer financial assistance to families who qualify. Visit our website at edinaschools.org/financialassistance for more information.

    As always, we welcome your feedback. We work hard to offer high-quality programming that meets the needs of young learners of all stages and abilities. Please call us at 952-848-3952 to offer your constructive feedback or email comedu@edinaschools.org.

  • 4 Youth Summer 2015

    The days of shushing students in the school library are over. A certain amount of decorum in the media center is still expected, but school media centers are no longer a single-use space where students studied alone, in silence. Todays students are just as likely to be actively creating and studying collaboratively. It is a sign of how learning has changed, and of the changed expectations of the business world.

    A variety of flexible, multi-use learning spaces are key to accomplishing Edina Public Schools (EPS) Next Generation Strategic Plan, an initiative that is focused on providing students with the education, skills and competencies they will need for successful careers and lives in the future. On May 5, the community will vote on a district proposal that seeks to align its schools and classrooms with this vision. The proposal seeks voter approval of $124.9 million in facilities improvements, touching every one of its 10 schools. The majority of the proposal, 81 percent, is targeted for Next Generation Learning
