Summer Update: CES In Action at Bruce Monroe Elementary!

As you may know — CES is in business year-round! During the school year at a few locations; and even during the summer! This summer, we were based at our partner school, Bruce Monroe Elementary to oversee their after school program for the students enrolled in summer school (grades Kindergarten – 2nd grade).

No matter the location or season, we make it our business to have some fun! From dancing, to drama plays to reading — Hey! Reading can be fun 😉 We even took a few field trips here and there, with one of our last trips to the National Building Museum (older kids) and to the Turkey Thicket Splash Park (younger kids). But that was just only ONE week of fun! We visited places all over DC over the summer, not only for entertainment — but for learning purposes. We can never leave that out 🙂

Was your child in summer school with us this season? Take a look for yourself:
