None of my kids were required to take summer school - their grades were good - but it was a good way to keep their minds sharp and their bellies full (they got lunch and breakfast LOL) Plus it was only 8/10ths of a mile from home, and I enjoyed walking with them to school each morning. It only ran for the month of July, and was interrupted many times by prior commitments.
None-the-less, they were far from pleased with the decision. The smiles here are forced (and Lu doesn't even seem to have tried)
Once at school, they met many old friends from both their current school and their old one.
