Norwood Public Schools Summer School, 2019
Just a reminder that all programs start on Monday July 8th!

Summer Matters (1-5) & Summer Academy (6-12)


The Norwood Public School district is proud to announce the establishment of a new and exciting summer opportunity for your child entering grades 1-5 in the fall.  This experience is designed for students who would benefit from a continuation of learning opportunities to ensure a successful transition to the next grade.

Highly qualified teachers will provide instruction in literacy and numeracy concepts, including reading readiness, literacy skills of comprehension and writing, hands on mathematics, organizational skills and cooperative games.  English as a Second Language services will be provided for ESL students.

The program will be held at the Coakley Middle School - 1315 Washington Street – from 8:30 until noon, beginning on Monday July 8th and ending on August 7th at noon.  This is a Monday through Thursday program.  No classes will be held on Fridays.

Please note that your child must be recommended by their principal in order to register for this program. Students will be bringing home the form from their principal during the week of May 6th through the 10th, and parents and guardians must then return their completed form to their building principal in order to complete the registration process. 

Summer Academy: Please note that if you wish to register for a middle or high school academic course, you can use our mail-in registration process, or you can come to one of our two walk-in registrations in order to register your child for a middle or high school academic course this summer.
