The Objective of the Summer Enrichment ProgramThe objective is to innovatively craft activities that differ from those utilized in the classroom. Enrichment activities are frequently interactive in nature and program-focused.
The Goal of the Enrichment ProgramThe primary goal is the prevention/reduction in summer learning loss to better prepare program participants to academically excel during the coming school year.
Tutoring Component of a Summer Enrichment ProgramAn integral part of the WiSHES Summer Enrichment Program is Tutoring.

Butterfly ProjectDuring our Summer Project we have observe the life cycle of Painted Lady Butterflies. As the students have learned, the Butterflies Life Cycle is from eggs, to caterpillars, to chrysalis where they emerge as a butterfly.
We began with 36 caterpillars and at the end of the project we had 25 Beautiful Painted Lady Butterflies that we released outside of the center.
Please enjoy the time lapsed video of the caterpillar going into chrysalis and real time video of a butterfly emerging from chrysalis.
