Summer Activities

You and your children may take advantage of the following summer opportunities!

Kids of STEEL is P3R’s free training program that helps motivate kids to get moving, which takes place from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. every Monday and Wednesday. The program is unique – an official race provides a tangible goal for kids to work toward – and currently available in more than 180 schools in western Pennsylvania. As part of this award-winning program, kids complete at least 25 training miles in preparation for a family-friendly P3R event. Then they get to celebrate their hard work and join Pittsburgh’s dynamic running community.

Pittsburgh Technical College
PTC is bringing fun activities to Deer Lakes students this summer. Free programs are being offered through August like Craete a micro:pet, Arduino Camp for Hands-On Learning, and the PTC Field Trip!

The local Penn State campus will offer a wide variety of fun activities for children this summer. While PSNK's educational camps ended on July 22nd, they will continue to offer a variety of sports camps.

The Boys and Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania offers year-round activities for students to learn.

Summer Reading

Summer Reading is offered to Middle School and High School students to encourage students to read, improve their reading skills, and have knowledge of authors. The data conclusively demonstrates that students who regularly read are better academic achievers and, for that reason, summer reading is essential.

For students looking to recover credits they either failed or missed during the traditional school year, the district partners with two online learning platforms that can be utilized. Read more about each below.

Grab N' Go Meals
You may pick-up meals from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday at the high school. This program is open to ALL individuals 18 years old and younger and the individuals do not have to be Deer Lakes School District students. The end date of this program will be in August and will be identified as we get closer.
