Free summer learning opportunities

Dear Bruins and Bruin Families, 

Brookings-Harbor High School is excited to announce an opportunity for continued learning this summer at no cost to you.

8th-11th grade students have a rare opportunity to earn additional credits by taking a class over the summer. This will allow you to make room for electives next fall or to shorten your senior schedule. 

Academic classes will be offered via Edgenuity: June 14th – July 22nd (Teacher support Mon-Thurs by appt.)

Community Art Class

June 14th – July 1st, Monday-Thursday, 8:15-11:15am AND/OR 11:45am-2:45pm

This summer art-making opportunity will center around painting a mural in the student commons area. The mural will be a panoramic, brightly colored landscape image of our oceanfront from McVay Beach to Harris Beach. Students will work as a team to fill in the large “paint by numbers” sections with the appropriate colors.  Artistic skills are a plus, but not required. We will find a creative task to fit your artistic skill-set! COVID safety precautions will be maintained by students & staff. The course may be taken for fine arts elective, community service hours, or to meet junior EA project requirements.
