• Full-day Kindergarten for all students
• 4-day kindergarten camp held in the summer of 2021, which, although optional, affords 83% of incoming kindergartners the chance to acclimate to the building and staff, and receive foundational instruction prior to the start of the school year. 
• In 2021, we offered a full-day, six-week summer STEM camp through a partnership with Young Men and Women in Charge. Camp costs were covered by the District so that any students who wanted to attend were able to do so for free!
• In addition to weekend food backpacks for food-insecure students, all students were provided with free breakfast and lunch during the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 school year.
