SAINT PAUL


A message from the Superintendent…

Valeria S. Silva Superintendent, Saint Paul Public Schools

Welcome! Saint Paul Public Schools is pleased to present our 2011 Community Education catalogue. Inside you can find multiple ways to connect with our community, prepare your student for success and learn something new this summer.

By enrolling your student in a summer course, you can help your student excel and create Strong Schools, Strong Communities! Every day of the year, we provide opportunities for our students to connect, learn and enter the classroom ready for school. During the summer, we offer academic programs for all elementary and secondary students to sharpen math, reading and writing skills. Not only can students come better prepared for class in the fall, but high school students can also earn up to six credits toward graduation. Programs in Saint Paul Public Schools are sure to exceed students’ expectations. Students don’t simply sit behind desks. They are active with athletic programs, dual-language environments and culture-infused arts classes as part of our Interdistrict Partnership and academic camps. With courses in science, the arts, world language and more – every turn of a page in this catalogue provides a host of fun and interactive classes. It’s not only students that participate in fun, enriching courses. Parents join in too by signing up for an Adult Enrichment class to learn a new hobby, uncover a new skill or learn about a subject of interest. Together we all can learn and model good behavior while creating a lifelong learning community. For more information about other opportunities in Community Education, including Early Childhood Family Education, Adult Basic Education, Adults with Disabilities and Discovery Club – visit www.commed.spps.org. As always, thank you for everything you do to support Saint Paul Public Schools. I hope you have a summer full of sun, fun and learning in our community. Warm regards, Valeria S. Silva Superintendent, Saint Paul Public Schools

Renaissance Techniques and Beyond

Designed to be taken in conjunction with our Renaissance Techniques and Beyond class or independently, this class is formatted to teach art students how to paint simply and quickly using traditional methods.
