Summer Learning Opportunities

Several summer learning opportunities and enrichment programs are now available online at www.nisdtx.org/summer. All learning opportunities will take place online this summer, including the district’s virtual Learning That Takes You Places program.

Through this website, students receive the opportunity to virtually explore a variety of cultures and locations around the world by reading, discussing, writing, reflecting and extending their learning. Learning that Takes You Places is designed to cross grade levels and content areas while incorporating aspects of STEM, CTE, athletics and fine arts.

In addition to learning opportunities, athletic programs will host in-person camps this summer. Information and registration links can be found here. The district’s regular Fine Arts Academy camps have been redesigned to online summer workshops; additional information about these programs can be found here.

Summer Meal Program

Northwest ISD’s regular summer meal program will take place throughout June at two campuses, using a grab-and-go format for families to quickly pick up food.

The program, which offers free meals for children ages 18 and younger, take place 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Thursday, from June 1 to June 30. Each Thursday, a Friday meal will also be provided. Families can pick up meals at Love Elementary School, located at 16301 Elementary Drive in Justin, or Prairie View Elementary School, located at 609 F.M. 3433 in Rhome.

Families who participated in Northwest ISD’s school closure meal program during remote learning are asked to reuse their vehicle tag for quick deliveries during the summer meal program.
