During this snowy winter, it is natural to daydream about warm summer days. It is also the perfect time to look into summer camps for the kids. Research shows that summer enrichment opportunities can:

  • reinforce and enrich curriculum concepts from the school year,
  • strengthen and broaden skills in literacy and math competencies,
  • develop confidence, motivation and self esteem, and
  • foster new interest in scholarship, social responsibility and personal growth.

We recognize the importance of summer learning, and we encourage you to explore the options for your children. FLITE does not take the summer off. In this issue, learn more about FLITE scholarship funding for Summer Learning Programs available to your children.


On March 21st, 2014, FLITE will take on the Harlem Wizards. Back by popular demand for a third consecutive year, the Harlem Wizards will return to play a spirited basketball game against students, teachers and administrators from every T/E school. This is such a fun way to spend a night with family, friends and teachers. You and your kids don't want to miss the big game.


Tickets to FLITE vs. the Harlem Wizards will be on sale on February 24th and 27th ONLY at the locations listed to the right. We expect tickets will sell out quickly, so mark your calendar now with the sale dates.


Stay warm. Summer will be here soon!

Summer Programs and Opportunities  


FLITE doesn't take the summer off and some of our students don't either. Last year, approximately 40 T/E students received scholarship funding so they could attend summer programs that would reinforce their academic skills and/or would encourage leadership qualities.


Camps that students have attended with financial assistance from FLITE include Delaware Valley Friends School, Spark the Wave at Villanova University and Young Writers Camp at West Chester University. Feedback from teachers confirms that students in summer learning programs return to school:

  • confident in their skills,
  • more engaged in the classroom, and
  • willing to work harder to do well.

Maintaining academic skills over the summer can be vital to the success of students during the school year, and FLITE is here to make sure opportunities are available to those that need them. 

Camps are a productive and wonderful way for students to spend their summer days. We encourage students to take advantage of Summer Programs. Talk to your child's guidance counselor now to find out about recommended camps that can benefit your child.

FLITE raises money to fund programs designed to ensure that students with financial or environmental barriers have the tools and support they need to meet academic expectations. 
FLITE works with the T/E School District and community to identify areas of need and to support programs that increase the opportunity for academic success.
FLITE is not involved
with selecting participants and is not aware of their identities. School guidance counselors and teachers work together to determine who should participate in FLITE funded programs.
