The Pasadena Educational Foundation (PEF) Summer Enrichment Program At Home Edition has a new format to reach students at home.

By News Desk

The At Home Edition is offered online this year for students PreK-12th grade, and includes hands-on video lessons from some of the most popular classes, summer learning tips, volunteer opportunities for high school students to earn service hours, and links to partner resources. Registration is not required and participation is free.

The program is debuting new video lessons and resources each week. Videos are 5-10 minutes long and include downloadable lesson plans. Videos can be watched at any time throughout the summer.

PEF also launched a companion weekly Summer Times Newsletter that comes out every Monday (through July 6) to share the latest video lessons and summer learning activities. (Sign up to receive the Summer Times weekly updates here).

1,000 learning supply kits

1,000 learning supply kits were created to meet the needs of the diverse student community. They were distributed to low-income families at several Grab & Go Meal sites. Paper lesson plans were offered, in two languages, for households that may not have access to the internet. All lessons were developed to use basic supplies that families could find at home or from the learning supply kits.
