Summer School 2024

The 2024 Plymouth School District Summer School program will offer about 40 free classes to keep students thinking and active during the summer!

Who can attend?

Plymouth Summer School is open to all school-aged children enrolled in or residing within the Plymouth School District. Students currently in grades 1-11 are expected to transition from class to class with minimal support.

When and where are classes?

Currently in 4K & 5K
New this year, Kindergarten Readiness (for students currently in 4K) and K-1 Transition (for students currently in 5K) will be split into two 2-week sessions: June 17-27 and July 8-18; students can attend only one session to allow more children the chance to participate.

Classes will meet from 8 to 11:30 a.m. Monday through Thursday at Parkview Elementary School, 500 Parkview Drive.

Currently in grades 1-7
Classes will run from 8 to 11:45 a.m. Monday through Thursday from June 17 to July 18 (no classes Thursday July 4) at Riverview Middle School, 300 Riverside Circle.

New this year, the final segment of the day (11-11:45 a.m.) will be Exploratory Learning/Nutrition time for all students, during which they can eat a free lunch and enjoy a variety of games and crafts.

Currently in grades 8-11
Students can participate in Plymouth Strength & Speed Training, a general athlete-training program, at Plymouth High School, 125 S. Highland Ave. Those currently in grades 9-11 can attend 6:30-8 a.m. or 8-9:30 a.m. Current eighth-graders (and freshmen needing more experience in the weight room) should attend 9:30-11 a.m.

How much does it cost?

There are no fees for Summer School. Those in Animal Recreation Safety and/or Vehicle Recreation Safety can seek optional DNR certification/licensure in hunting, archery, snowmobile, boat, and ATV for $10 each; and trapping for $12.

How do we register?

Registration is now open! Registration is handled online via Skyward Family Access and is best done using a computer, rather than a phone. Register students according to their current grade (please note that this has changed). Click here for detailed registration instructions.

Free busing is available within district boundaries. If you need busing, please complete the Summer School Bus Form and return it to any public school office by May 15.

Registration will close promptly Thursday May 23. Parents/guardians are encouraged to register as soon as possible, because many classes fill up while those with insufficient enrollment may be cancelled.

Contact your child’s school office if you need assistance. (PHS 920-893-6911, Riverview 920-892-4353, Fairview 920-892-2621, Horizon 920-892-2225, or Parkview 920-892-4076)

Summer School Self-Guided Tour

If parents / caregivers are unable to have children present for this service, they should contact Food Service Director, Caren Johnson, to make arrangements.

Notice to students & families

The Plymouth Summer School program again is offering Outdoor Animal Recreation, which includes a Hunter Safety component in which students will learn to properly handle a firearm. Participants will use modified firearms with the firing pins removed, which means they cannot fire. These modified firearms, which are approved by both the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the Department of Public Instruction (DPI), are painted hunter orange to signify that they are educational tools. In addition, all ammunition is also DNR-approved, contains no gun powder, and is not inserted into firearms. The field work will be held at a remote location away from students to limit any interactions or anxiety, but you or your child may see these firearms on school grounds. Please contact Summer School officials if you have any questions or concerns.
