What’s New with eSucceed
eSucceed had technology drop off days last week. All technology will be cleaned, repaired if needed, and receive updated software. Our students will receive their equipment prior to the start of the school year, in the fall during student orientation.

Our teachers and staff are excited to be attending a 3-day Project Based Learning (PBL) workshop this week. We will deepen our knowledge of PBL so we can add to our eSucceed students PBL experience!
We have some BIG news eSucceed fans…. we are in the process of planning a K-5 elementary school for the fall of 2020! Stay tuned for updates! Check HERE for updates!
What our Students Are Saying!
“I would rate my experience with eSucceed this year as a 10. I had my ups and downs but I had myself and others to push me and help me through. I feel more successful with virtual learning than I ever had in my previous school years. Teachers were never negative and were always positive with everything this year. I am very excited for next year with eSucceed”. -An eSucceed student
What to do this Summer?
Ten fun ideas to make the most of your summer
- Be Bored! Some of the best ideas come to you when you are bored. You are forced to slow down and think…you never know what invention or inspiration you might come up with! Being bored can lead to a creative breakthrough or allow time for you to reflect on life.
- Check out the Farmers Market! Buy something you have never tried before or plan a meal and pick up your ingredients at the market, or just take in the sights and smells.
- Go on a Picnic! Keep it simple with a PB&J and an apple, or go all out with a picnic chicken, potato salad and a dessert. Find a shady spot along the stream or a picnic table at the local park.
- Read, read, and read some more! Make a list of books you want to read over the summer. Challenge yourself to read a certain number of books and give yourself a prize for completing the challenge! (Hint: Homemade ice cream would make a delicious prize! See #7)
- Science! Do some science experiments with ingredients you have at home. (Ask your science teacher for some ideas!)
- Look at the Stars. Stargaze and try to look for some constellations! Ursa Major (The Big Dipper), Ursa Minor (The Small Dipper), Orion, Scorpius..just to name a few…
- Make Homemade Ice Cream. You don’t need a fancy ice cream maker to make your own ice cream! See below for recipe!
- Create Some Art! Use supplies at home or get some new art supplies and create your own work of art! Use nature, your home or pets, or your favorite hobby as an inspiration. Share with us what you created! We may even feature your art on our social media pages!
- Reorganize Your Learning Space. Refresh your learning space with a good cleaning, fresh pens or pencils, or add something colorful. Check out a past newsletter about cleaning your learning space here.
- Pack up and go Camping! Even if it’s car camping or in your backyard, it can be an adventure! Don’t forget about S’Mores!
