Our summer program began on June 10, 2013. Thirty-five Novice and Apprentice students are participating in the Summer Program.

As the Monarch Center approaches its opening, and the Butterfly (building) prepares a transition into launching, what emerges from the Chrysalis (building) this summer, are lessons and practices in moving, movement, motion, migration, momentum and Monarchs! Mixed into our regular scheduling, the summer program adds on campus water play days, special visitors with a focus on dance, and several field trips that relate to our identified themes. Monarch is making movement. We are all making movement!

Summer Field Trips

During the summer, we go on lots of field trips. We go to have fun and work on our goals. All our field trips are related to our summer theme. This summer, our theme is movement. Here is some information about our four summer field trips.

Our first field trip was to the Children’s Museum. We went to Kidtropolis. I had fun filming a TV newscast with a peer. We went to Power Play and climbed the tower. We went to Flow Works and played with toys there. All the stations have water power. I felt happy on this field trip.

Our second field trip was to Pump it Up. Pump it Up has lots of things to jump and bounce on. We climbed up to slide down the big slide. We jumped and played basketball. We went through the maze and played on a big flower. Bouncing was funny and fun.

We have two more field trips coming up.This week we are going to the Houston Museum of Natural Science in Sugar Land. We will learn about dinosaurs and roller coasters. The last field trip will be to the Health Museum. We will learn about eating good food and keeping our bodies healthy. We are going to have fun on these field trips. I like going on field trips because they are fun.

The Monarch School is honored to be collaborating with Volunteer Houston once again this summer. For the sixth year we are honored to host an intern from ExxonMobil and we are extremely grateful to host an intern position under Shell’s Non-Profit Intern Program. As our enrollment increases, the sponsorships become critical to the success of our summer program.

On Wednesday, June 26th, we welcomed twenty energetic interns from ExxonMobil Community Summer Jobs Program administered by Volunteer Houston, for one of their Intern Service Project days. The Monarch School was one of three agencies selected to be a site for this service day project. The visiting interns met with Dr. Hall and Mr. Christopher to learn more about The Monarch School and Institute through an introductory presentation and an ensuing tour of the programs in full action. From there, they assembled in smaller groups, with a mission to help us with our approaching move!
