Summer Enrichment Program 2021
Create, explore, and connect at the Pasadena Educational Foundation’s Summer Enrichment Program 2021.
The 18th year of the PEF Summer Enrichment Program will be in-person again. While our program will look a bit different this year, as always we will offer your child the chance to create, grow, and connect in energetic and engaging ways.
June 14 – July 15 M-Th, 8:30 am -12:30 pm
(No classes Monday, July 5)
June 14 – July 2 M-Th, 8:30 am -12:30 pm
The PEF Summer Enrichment Program is focused on providing an engaging summer of learning for our students. All classes will have integrations of social emotional learning, arts, and movement.
Here are some updates to our 2021 program:
- Students choose one main class for the day – it will be your child’s base for a vibrant summer day. Through added elements of art, science, and/or movement, each class will be a full and rich experience – one that offers deep learning, but most of all, fun
- All COVID-19 health department protocols will be followed, including social distancing and mask requirements.
- Individual classroom materials will be provided for each student.
School-sites: Field, Jackson, McKinley, San Rafael, and Sierra Madre MS

While we weren’t be able to be physically together last year, we brought some of your favorite summer teachers to you. We created a new website with lessons for grades PreK-12 in a variety of fun subjects like robotics, cooking, visual art, dance, yoga, and more.
Video lessons are available to watch at anytime and have lesson plans to download, too!
“Our family has participated in PEF two years in a row now.
The teachers are top notch and work really hard to make it fun and engaging.”
What They Are Saying
Coming Back!“Absolutely coming back. I love having a morning-only program for the kids, where they can learn, but have a choice of fun, different interesting classes and the new afternoon option is fantastic for us working parents.”Sharon L.
So Much Fun!“She has so much fun and it keeps her brain working over the summer. We love the mix of fun and academic skill building, that they get to try three different things rather than a single focus, and the whole program is offered at a great price. Absolutely will come again next year.”James K.
The mix of classes is exciting!My daughter gets bored during the summer and there were so many fun options. She's already planning what classes she would like to take next year.”Marianne V.
