ALF Summer School for Grades 1-6 at La Cañada Elementary

For 40 years, Assistance League of Flintridge has held ALF Summer School at one of the elementary schools in the La Cañada Unified School District.  This year, we are pleased to be located at La Cañada Elementary School.  ALF Summer School is administered by Assistance League of Flintridge members who are volunteers.  Many of the teachers, aides and Principals come from the district and nearby areas. Many also return year after year to be part of the program.  During the summer, students are encouraged to participate “for the joy of learning” and there is no homework.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have cancelled the following classes prior to the start of registration:

Exploring Engineering, Grades 2-3, Period 2
Exploring Engineering, Grades 4-5, Period 3

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Deena Keys & Donna Shepherd, ALF Summer School Co-Chairmen

For those students who will need childcare before or after ALF Summer School, the Child Educational Center will be on-site at La Cañada Elementary to provide activities for those who sign up.  Visit the CEC website for more information.
