    Dear Parent,

    The Derry Township School District Summer School Program is returning for 2017!  It is for students who will be starting Kindergarten this fall up to those who will be in 6th grade when school opens.  There are a wide variety of programs to be offered for your children this summer.  Certified teaching professionals will teach all courses. 

    Derry Township Parks and Recreation’s Summer Day Camp will be taking place in the Hershey Middle School this year.  Any students attending Summer Day Camp can easily attend enrichment courses.  Just notify the Summer Day Camp office that your child has been signed up for classes.

    There will be two (2) one-week seminars offered from June 12th – June 22nd.  The schedule will be as follows with two sessions each day:

                            June 12 - 15             (Monday-Thursday)           9:00-10:25 and 10:35-12:00

                            June 19 - 22             (Monday-Thursday)           9:00-10:25 and 10:35-12:00

    The cost for a four-day class is $50.00.  Class sizes will be limited.  There will be no refunds given for summer school.  No one will be registered without payment.  Some of the classes require an additional fee for supplies that is to be paid directly to the teacher and NOT be included with your class payment.

    All summer school information and forms are listed on the Derry Township School District website www.hershey.k12.pa.us and extra print-outs are available in each office. All course sign-ups are on a first-come/first-serve basis.  Attached you will find a course list with instructors, course descriptions and a registration form.  Health forms are only required for NEW students of the district.  Registration for all courses will begin on May 15th. You do not need to register in person.  You do so simply by returning all registration materials to your child’s classroom teacher, or by bringing them to any elementary office.  Please be sure to send or bring in the registration form and a check made payable to
