Community gatherings were added to SummerLEAP in 2018 and ended up being on of the most anticipated parts of the program for both our students and faculty. For a majority of the day the students primarily interact with their grade-level peers. We host multiple sets of siblings in our program, but the siblings are often on different schedules since schedules vary by grade. We wanted our grades to have more interaction with one another, which led to the idea of community gatherings.
At our community gatherings we have done “Minute to Win It” games where students are selected from each grade to compete against one another in friendly competition. We also have dance parties during our community gathering, which allow students to dance with one another and get excited about the upcoming week.
