Summer activities
Are you looking for fun activities to do with your student this summer to keep them engaged in learning?
Consider taking them to the Michigan Science Center, a young-student friendly place to learn about science through visual and hands-on activities.
Your family could also attend a community event at a local park, such as Campus Martius Park. Check out the events page at for more ideas!

At Hamtramck Public Schools, we offer both in-person learning options and the Virtual Learning Institute for children in grades K-12.
The VLI gives your student the choice to take accelerated programs, join virtual clubs, take unique electives and gain access to a virtual coach.
