Great Apps to Download this Summer for Lower School Students

It is officially summer. Time to soak up some sun, head to the beach, maybe take a vacation, and of course, avoid the summer slide! 

While we all enjoy the next eight weeks, the Gulf Stream School family is happy to suggest a few websites and apps that are used throughout the school year within the classrooms. These platforms align with the Lower School Curriculum, are age-appropriate, and are approved by our teachers. 

As always, we are here to support our students throughout the year, even beyond the school calendar. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact Bridget Langford [email protected] or Danielle Cooper [email protected]. Happy Surfing!
