LEAP into Summer

LEAP into Summer

LEAP into Summer 2019!

Dear SMUSD Families,

We are excited to announce that our LEAP summer registration is now open! 

It is the mission of The San Marcos Promise to help prepare and empower students for the 21st Century workforce by providing them the resources and knowledge they need to build a satisfying career. To achieve success and a satisfying life, we believe that every student should choose a pathway that is paved by their strengths, interests, and talents.

The San Marcos Promise endeavors to help students identify those strengths, interests, and talents by exposing them to many career opportunities, and encouraging them to choose, with intention, a viable post-high school pathway that can lead to a successful career and a satisfying life. But we know that our work starts well before students begin making their post high-school graduation decisions. With that being said, we also understand that students only know and learn from what they’re exposed to in their immediate environment.

So... how does a student aspire to a career that he or she doesn’t know exists? This is the purpose of LEAP(Learning Enrichment to Achieve Promise). LEAP is an afterschool and summer program designed for children aged kinder to eighth grade. Students are able to explore their interests and gain real-world skills while being exposed to various career pathways. LEAP has served over 1,000 students since 2016 and is growing each year.

Teachers have the opportunity to design and teach an enrichment class which conveys their passion and excitement for the world around. To date, over 30 San Marcos Unified teachers have participated in teaching over 50 different classes. LEAP also gives money directly back to the schools for VAPA, STEM, P.E, and innovation funding. To date, LEAP has given over $10,000 back to SMUSD schools.

We have a simple but powerful tagline for The San Marcos Promise; it’s “Building dreams, pathways and prosperity.” Together we can help to inspire all students to dream big about their futures and LEAP towards success!
