Park City School District expands summer and preschool programs

PARK CITY, Utah — This summer, the Park City School District (PCSD) is expanding its educational offerings with enhanced summer school and preschool programs aimed at providing comprehensive support and enrichment for local students and families.

Summer School Program

This season, 300 students from kindergarten to ninth grade will attend the summer school program at Treasure Mountain Junior High. Running from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays, the program aims to blend academic learning with enriching activities.

“We’re really excited to see it evolve,” said Todd Klarich, PCSD director of community education. “A lot of small group interventions will be going on, for example, we’ve integrated the reading program created by beloved teacher Cara Cook. It’s going to be an awesome summer.”

The summer school provides breakfast, lunch, and transportation, ensuring accessibility for all participating students. In addition to academics in the mornings, the program includes various enrichment opportunities in the afternoons, made possible through community partnerships.

Next Monday through Thursday, the Community Education department will also offer junior baking classes, Chef School, for 1st to 3rd graders. Additionally, the Park City Aquatic Center at Ecker Hill Middle School, where Klarich was previously the director, is offering adult lap swim and children’s swim lessons throughout the summer.

Preschool Expansion

Looking ahead, PCSD is also making significant strides in early childhood education. This fall, the district will open new Preschool Community Education Centers, providing full-day preschool for four-year-old students, Mondays through Fridays.

“The new Preschool Community Education Centers are going to be a huge addition for the community, as we’re going to be able to support the local families during and after school,” Klarich explained. An official ribbon-cutting ceremony for the newly constructed preschool building expansions will be announced at a later date.

Funding and Support

These programs are partially funded by donations made through Park City Education Foundation (PCEF) events such as the Red Apple Gala, Beat The Call, and Running With Ed fundraisers. These contributions help support the summer school, after school, and preschool programs, ensuring they can continue to benefit the community.
