SPS Explore
Posted on 06/17/2021

There is often a world of wonder in our own backyard.  We learn about and experience what surrounding areas have to offer, but did you know that Suffolk is rich in history, art, culture, adventures, and traditions as well? Whether it's the Suffolk Coastline Seaboard Trail, Suffolk Center for the Cultural Arts, Bennetts Creek Park, Riddick’s Folly, or even the Suffolk Farmer’s Market,  there are a variety of fun and adventurous learning opportunities for our students and families. 

Suffolk Public Schools is offering SPS Explore for all SPS students and families to investigate the wonders of our area. These activities are grade-level specific, skill based, family-focused and student-centered for learning, application, and fun. Participating students will venture out and report on their learning using Canvas and other digital media to earn prizes such as food and activities gift cards, game and event passes, SPS Swag, weekly recognition, and much more!  

Grab your family and further your interest in becoming a mathematician, scientist, historian, artist, wellness champion, and informed citizen by joining our exploration of our great city through the SPS Explore activities!

SPS Explore is a part of the Suffolk Public Schools Summer Bridge program.  Students who wish to register for any of the Summer Bridge activities must self-enroll in the course.  Instructions for self-enrollment will be posted on the district website and social media platforms on June 30th.
