Summer Enrichment Opportunities for Students in All Grade Levels
Northwest ISD offers a variety of summer opportunities so students can stay engaged and keep learning while school is out. 
 
Research shows that as much as two months of math and reading skills can be lost during summer break. But it only takes a couple of hours a week of learning for students to avoid the summer slide. We encourage students to continue to read books and take advantage of the break to explore their interests and learn something new!

Visit www.nisdtx.org/summer for a list of opportunities available this summer for elementary and secondary students, including creative problem-solving camps, athletic camps, fine arts camps, summer reading and more. 

Plus, you can take your kids on a virtual vacation through the Learning That Takes You Places site. Students get to virtually explore a variety of cultures and locations around the world by reading, discussing, writing, reflecting and extending their learning, all while incorporating aspects of STEM, CTE, athletics and fine arts.
