Summer Opportunities for Career Exploration

Below are opportunities to keep your child engaged throughout the summer:

Summer Camps throughout Charleston:

Envision, Lead, Grow- Summer Camp & Mentoring:

Program Summary: Envision Lead Grow is a Norfolk, Virginia-based 501(c)(3) non-profit working to introduce under-served girls to entrepreneurship. We are currently in 9 different cities on the east coast and we are expanding to 30 cities across the U.S. in 2019, including Charleston.

We offer a 4-Tier program at no-cost to our girls or their families. First, the girls attend our interactive entrepreneurship sleep-away camp, where we walk them through the fundamentals of starting a business. At the end of camp, girls pitch their business ideas to a panel of judges, and the winning venture receives $500 seed money for her business.

We invite you to learn more about Envision Lead Grow and our programs by visiting our website. If you have any additional questions, you can call 757-321-1474. All of the opportunities below are Student Led, meaning students must take the leadership role in applications, etc. Students should speak with their teacher, school counselor, and parents before applying for any of these opportunities.

Mark your calendars! Join us in a family fun evening of Corn Hole on Thursday, May 2nd from 5-6pm! Kona Ice will be available for purchase!

Dear Stono Park Parents,

In preparation for the first day, we wanted to inform everyone of our first day arrival process, so that can welcome students in a safe and orderly manner. Kindergarten students and parents will proceed straight to the classroom. First through fifth grade students will gather in the gymnasium. Parents are welcome to join. We will welcome everyone and then begin to call the class rosters. Teachers will escort their students back over to the main building. We are asking for you patience during car line. It may be longer than usual, as we will have more cars and we will need to stop the line to let students cross periodically. Thank you in advance for support during this busy and exciting time. We are looking forward to a great school year!
