Summer School Information
Defiance Elementary will hold summer school Monday-Thursday, August 3 - 13 from 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.  If your child's teacher recommended summer school, a note was included with your grade card in May.  A letter with more information (including transportation options) will be sent to your family in July.  Mark your calendar now for these dates.  Summer school will be offered to students that have completed grades 2 and 3.  If room permits, we will open summer school eligibility to completed grades 1 and 4 as well.
Kindergarten Camp
Defiance Elementary will offer a Kindergarten Camp during the week of August 10-13 (Monday-Thursday).  This camp will give students the opportunity to get used to the elementary building, practice riding a school bus and other routine procedures expected for incoming kindergarten students.  The camp is FREE of charge and limited to 30 students.  It will run from 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. each day, and is by invitation only.
