Here is a sampling of some of these summer programs:

Aim High: While on the outside, this program might look like “summer school” it’s not. Aim High is an intensive, four-week program that combines academics with leadership, citizenship and adventure for middle school kids. The Aim High program is housed at Kings Beach Elementary School. Transportation is included, and the program is free. Incoming and current middle schoolers can talk to their teachers if they are interested in the program.

Summer Scholars: Younger students in grades K-4 who may need some summertime intervention and additional literacy support have the option of participating in the K Camp and Summer Scholars program hosted by the school district. The programs run three weeks and are offered at Truckee Elementary and Kings Beach Elementary. Young students must be recommended for the Summer Scholars program by their teacher. All incoming kindergartners are welcome and encouraged to participate in the K Camp.

Tahoe Truckee Reads!: This program is offering a little something for everyone this summer. There are summer reading programs planned at the Truckee, Kings Beach and Tahoe City libraries, the Kings Beach Family Room, and the Tahoe Lake Elementary School Library. All the summer reading programs have special events planned, with games and prizes awarded based on the number of books read over the summer. Neighborhood reading programs are also planned at the Donner Creek Mobile Home Park, Truckee Pines Apartments, Henness Flats Apartments, Tahoe Vista Park and El Andar at Truckee Elementary.

Information about special events, online reading programs, reading lists and more can be found Also, look for the special Summer Learning Guide to come out in the Sierra Sun on Wednesday, June 17.
