P.O. Box 110656 Naples 34108 info@neafamily.com

Welcome to the Spring/Summer CCPS Activities Guide!

As the school year comes to an end, I am so excited to share this new edition of the Collier County Public School Activities Guide. There are so many great opportunities for activities throughout the community. From sports, arts, or, even music classes, I am hopeful that you will find the perfect match for your child and family. Inside this guide, you will find listings for local after-school programs and classes offered in our area. We asked our local businesses and organizations to share their information in the hope that CCPS families can easily find the perfect activity for their child. The guide is distributed to nearly 50,000 students across the district. It is our goal to include as many businesses as possible. If you have a business or organization and would like to be included in future editions of the CCPS Activities Guide, please forward the information to info@neafamily.com. With summer right around the corner, now is the perfect time to find a new activity for your child. I cannot wait to see what great things they can achieve! Thank you, Kamela Patton, Ph.D. Superintendent
