FWISD Reopens Saturday Learning Quest Registration
More students will soon have an opportunity to benefit from Fort Worth ISD Saturday Learning Quest programming.
Saturday Learning Quest registration reopens Thursday, September 23 for all first, second and third-grade students via fwisd.org/slq and remains open through midnight October 6.
“We wanted to provide an additional opportunity to families who might have missed the first registration window. We have also just completed our NWEA MAP Growth testing and parents and campuses may want to take advantage of additional instructional time,” said Shannon Hernandez, FWISD K-12 math and science executive director. “We anticipate accepting as many registrations as we can get.”
The District successfully launched the Saturday Learning Quest program on September 11. More than 2,700 students across 24 campuses participated in the first Saturday classes. The program resumes Saturday, September 25. Students applying for the second round of registration will start the program on October 16.
Saturday Learning Quest (SLQ) is a targeted learning opportunity for academic growth and social emotional support available to first, second and third-grade students.
More than a dozen Saturdays throughout the 2021-22 school year, students will take part in a day of rigorous, active instruction in literacy and math designed around engaging themes. Young learners will also enjoy enrichment opportunities such as classes in art and music, physical activities, labs and visits to the District’s mobile STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) units. Participating students are eligible for incentive prizes for attending, as well as weekly giveaways of books and other academic materials.
While children are involved with their activities, Saturday Learning Quest will also offer family support. There will be Adult Education classes, Parent University, as well as prizes for parent engagement.
Free transportation, breakfast and lunch is available to participants each Saturday classes are held.
