What is Summer Learning Adventure?

Summer Learning Adventure (SLA) is a free, outdoor-themed enrichment program for currently enrolled Kindergarten-5th grade APS students during the 2023-2024 school year. 

Our goal is to provide a rich and engaging program that helps students learn, practice, and retain skills throughout the summer. We expect students to learn and try new things, get messy, and engage with activities that will inspire and challenge them in new ways!

Kindergarten - Fifth Grade

Our  program theme is NM Wild! We explore literacy, math, science, social studies, and the arts while emphasizing New Mexico plants, animals, habitats, aquatics, and geology. We will be outdoors daily, learning in a camp-like setting using project-based, hands-on learning.

Reasonable accommodations will be made to enable students with disabilities to participate in the extracurricular program.

Transportation/Bus Routes

Bus routes will run between student's currently enrolled APS school and Summer Learning Adventure host site. Unfortunately there is not a bus route for the SLA host site as all parents are responsible in transporting their student to their enrolled/home school for bus transportation.

Parents MUST be present at drop off or student will be brought back to City Center(District office at 6400 uptown Blvd. NE) for parent pick up.  

Students may take the bus to and from the SLA host site but it is not required for both.  We do ask that you do not change the location of pick as we compile a list of those students riding each bus. 

If you click on the SLA school your student will attend this summer you will find the bus route times for pick up and drop.  These bus routes will be available 1-2 weeks prior to the start of the SLA program.  

What to Wear and Bring

  • Students need to dress accordingly. Wear tennis shoes/closed-toed shoes. No sandals or flip flops.
  • For the first day, we recommend bringing a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, water bottle, snack, and backpack.

Breakfast and Lunch

  • Breakfast and lunch will be provided daily.
  • Students are welcome to bring their own lunch if they would like.
  • Any questions regarding the breakfast or lunch menu, please contact Food Services at (505) 345-5661

Additional Information

Behavior and Attendance Expectations for Parent and Students

Behavior Expectations

SLA is a fun, hands-on summer program. It is important that students are engaged and actively participating in the activities.

SLA students will follow the APS Student Behavior Handbook:

Summer violations of the student handbook may result in disenrollment. We want everyone to enjoy the program and stay safe.

Academic Expectations

The program will feature reading, writing, science, and math activities. Our goal is to help students learn throughout the summer and to make the learning experience fun, engaging, inspiring, and challenging.

Teachers may have some at-home tasks for students to complete, so please reinforce the importance of completing those at-home tasks.

Work will not be graded, and students will not earn course credits.

Attendance Expectations

Dates are given so that families may plan their summer vacations and fun accordingly. Because of the high demand and limited spaces, please do not enroll your student if you know they will miss more than 3 days. If your student misses more than the 3 days, they will be dis-enrolled. This policy is put in place for your students academic success.  

Field Trips

All students will go on one field trip during the program.  Your students school will provide more information after the start of the program. 

Before and After School Program

APS Summer Learning Office does not determine whether or not a site will have before/after school care.  Providers must volunteer to provide this service in the summer.  

At this time Summer Learning Adventure will not have before/after school programs at the SLA sites.  Please contact our Out of School Time office with any questions or concerns regarding this matter@  or 855-9798.
