Summer is right around the corner and that means kids are going to have a lot of time on their hands. Now is the time for parents to start thinking about what options they have to keep their sons and daughters busy with fun and even educational activities.
There are a number of recreational opportunities in the Imperial Valley for youths. To find out what city recreation programs are going to be conducted, from swimming lessons to day camps, now is a good time to start making calls. Contact the recreation department in your city to see what services will be provided.
You also might want to start thinking about contacting schools to find out what summer school programs are going to be available. Kids might not want to attend summer school, but it can be helpful to make sure they focus on reading, writing and math, and we think it more fun being in school with friends than being home where the only friend is the television and maybe a few video games. Some local school districts have been known to offer enrichment programs for students who are doing well in school but whose education can be widened and deepened through such programs.
