Learning Launch - Summer 2023


Rise up!


St. Louise School’s

Learning Launch

July 31 - August 2 from 9:00 -12:30



Students who join our Learning Launch in August will get a head start on September’s classes. St. Louise teachers will design fun lessons to minimize summer learning loss and put students on the fast-track to fall academic preparedness. Learning Launch students will receive instruction on material from the recently completed school year - a terrific opportunity for more practice to confidently begin a new grade level!


Learning Launch is open to St. Louise School students who are entering grades 1-5. Each Learning Launch class will be between 6-12 students. The instructors of the classes are:


  • Mrs. Tubb – for students entering grades 1-2
  • Ms. Portolese – for students entering grade 3-4
  • Mrs. Crosby – for students entering grade 5-6


Three 3.5-hour days of re-learning the fundamental reading, writing, and math skills from the previous school year, in preparation for the upcoming new grade level. A sample schedule is:

  • 9:00-10:30 – lessons, activities, and practice in the previous grade level’s READING
  • 10:30-11:00 – outdoor recess
  • 11:00-12:30 – lessons, activities, and practice in the previous grade level’s MATH


$350 per child.


  • The first 10 students per grade level who register by paying the $350 fee will be assured a roster spot.
  • After 10 have paid, any late registrants will be put on a waiting list, as the maximum class size is 10.
  • Those on the waiting list will get their fee refunded in full if a roster spot does not open prior to August.
  • For those on the roster, refunds for withdrawals can only be given if there is a waiting list student who takes the withdrawn spot.



Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday – July 31 - August 2 – from 9AM to 12:30PM.

Parents are asked to walk their children directly to the teacher’s room at 8:55-9:00 each morning and to wait outside the room at 12:25-12:30 to pick them up:

  • Mrs. Tubb – Grades 1 and 2 in room 2B
  • Ms. Portolese – Grades 3 and 4 in room 4B
  • Mrs. Crosby – Grades 5 and 6 in room 4A


Students who are attending St. Louise’s Chargers’ Adventure Summer Camp this same week will report to Learning Launch and then at 12:30 will be walked over supervised to the Lavelle Center for Summer Camp.
