    2017 DCPS Summer Opportunities

    A Message from the Assistant Superintendent for Instruction

    Dr. Kari WestonOn behalf of the School Board and Dinwiddie County Public Schools’ staff, let me officially welcome you to the 2017 summer of learning!

    Throughout the school year our staff and students are afforded numerous opportunities to learn in new and innovative ways. The successes of these efforts have generated great interest in formally coordinating learning activities that take place during the summer months. In response to these requests, our online booklet is intended to provide the Dinwiddie Community (students, staff, families, county administrators, residents, etc.) with a resource for accessing learning opportunities offered by numerous sponsors during the summer months.

    I hope you will find this booklet to be a unique resource as you schedule your summer of learning. Please be certain to check back often as new activities will be added as they are submitted by event sponsors. Click here to be taken to our online “2017 DCPS Summer Opportunities of Learning” booklet.

    Thank you for your interest in the DCPS’ Summer Opportunities of Learning. I look forward to hearing about your experiences and spending another summer learning alongside you.

    At the time of registration, please have with you an original birth certificate, social security number, record of immunizations, proof of residency, and any custody papers, if needed.
