Summer Program | St. George School - Erie, PA

The Saint George School Summer Program philosophy is to provide a safe and loving atmosphere for preschool and school-aged children during the summer months in order to provide learning experiences and activities in which each child can grow in spirit, mind, and body, and to help each child develop a positive self-image and an appreciation of Christian values.

Donations to the program are always appreciated, welcomed, and smiled upon such as snacks, birthday treats, new and used toys, games, books, and art supply materials. Please try to label all of your child’s belongings such as:

  • Coats
  • Sweatshirts
  • Suits
  • Towels
  • Lunches
  • Backpacks

Open communication concerning your child’s special needs, suggestions and ideas about our program are important to us. Parents are always welcome to visit, read, play games, or help with field trips anytime their busy schedules permit! Saint George School Summer Program staff look forward to being with you and your child. Thank you for your support. As always, your communication and participation in our program is encouraged.

You are an important part of our overall goal; to provide quality care in a safe, healthy, and fun atmosphere.
