The Cove School Summer Program June 13-July 25, 2014

The Cove School is proud to offer a comprehensive summer school program. Classes will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. School will be closed on Friday, July 4. Basic academic courses are offered in the morning. (Refer to registration form). Electives and the majority of specialized instruction are offered in the afternoon. Summer school at The Cove School is a unique experience for students with learning disabilities. Students at Cove feel safe and supported. Students get what they need to learn, and are accepted for who they are. Summer school at Cove meets a variety of student needs. Some students need to maintain skills previously learned in a variety of subjects. Others need remediation in a particular subject. High school students may need additional credits. Still others may attend because of a requirement by their school district. Whatever the reason, The Cove School meets the needs of the individual student by tailoring a schedule for each child. All classes have a maximum of ten students. Students may attend for one, two, or all three morning classes. Attending classes in the afternoon only is also an option. Full day attendance combines the academics of the morning with integrated activities in the afternoon. High school students must take a final exam and complete all assignments in order to receive credit for a class. High School students will receive .25 credit for the elective they select if they attend 27 of the 30 days of instruction. 1

Please read the course selections carefully. All students need to register for summer school even if they attend Cove during the regular school year. A schedule will be sent home just prior to the first day of summer school. New students to Cove need to complete the application form and return it with a deposit. In addition, the most recent evaluation of the child and a copy of their most recent IEP, if applicable, should be sent or dropped off at the Cove School office. This will allow staff to review the child’s information to make sure that we can adequately meet their needs.

one-to-one and small group remediation Cove also offers a multisensory approach to reading during the afternoon. Students are taught how their mouths look, feel and move when producing letter sounds and combinations of letters. This strategy helps them selfcorrect when errors are made during reading. The skill is also effective in correcting spelling errors. Students will also be taught to create meaningful mental images while reading. These mental images become mental movies, filled with color and action. This crucial strategy develops

naturally for some. For others, visualizing needs to be systematically taught to aid in reading comprehension, critical thinking, and language development. Private remediation in all academic courses is available as well as individual speech/language therapy and occupational therapy. Class size will be kept small to maximize learning. Sign up early to reserve a place for your child. Acceptance is pending approval of Dr. Johnstone.
