Pittsburgh Public Schools calls its summer school, “Summer Dreamers Academy.” More than 1,500 students, mostly in elementary grades, get to attend this 27 day “summer camp” at no charge. The morning half of the day is in a classroom with teachers and a program of literacy and math. The afternoons are spent in activities — and the best and most popular of them all, in our humble opinion, is Swim & Water Polo.
Thousands of photos, lesson plans, and insights about PPS Summer Dreamers’ Swim & Water Polo are posted on wiki pages, http://CLOH.wikia.com.
