This summer, Osseo Area Schools will once again host CDF Freedom Schools® programming at Crest View Elementary School and Garden City Elementary.
An initiative of the Children’s Defense Fund, Freedom Schools provides summer enrichment that helps children fall in love with reading, increases their self-esteem, and generates more positive attitudes toward learning.
To be eligible for Freedom Schools, children must:
- Be in Kindergarten through seventh-grade during the 2019-2020 school year, and
- Currently attend an elementary or middle school in Osseo Area Schools
The summer 2020 program runs from Monday, June 15 to Thursday, July 23. Parents/guardians are responsible for their child’s transportation to and from the program, which is held weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Note: Freedom Schools will not be held on July 3.)
Space is limited; families are encouraged to register their child(ren) as soon as possible.
