SUM Associate, VISTA Horizons Student Enrichment Program-LMS
Lexington Montessori School is proud to serve as an affiliate of HORIZONS National, a 27-year-old organization striving to build brighter futures for all children. The HORIZONS program model effectively combines high-quality academics with cultural enrichment and confidence-building opportunities. Horizons@LMS serves as one of three site locations in Massachusetts and hosts the youngest students in the national network. In addition, Horizons@LMS is currently the only participating Montessori school. HORIZONS is designed to have children maintain and make progress academically during the six-week summer program, ready to start the new school year in the fall, for consecutive summers through middle school This past summer, Horizons @ LMS hosted 73 students from Waltham and some neighboring towns, all who qualify for free or reduced lunch. The program offers a Montessori Work Cycle, pool time at Waltham YMCA, as well as enrichment classes in art, farming, music, and physical education. 2023 will mark our ninth summer supporting our Horizons community. To help ensure that Horizons children receive the educational, social, and emotional support they need to break the cycle of poverty the Horizons VISTA will create and improve on existing fiscal, communication and data management structures and processes within to solidify the future of the program and its impact on the community.
