ARLINGTON- Classes are done for the year, but Arlington Public Schools offers two summer learning opportunities for students at no cost to families.

The Mathmobile will be running again this year and will be staffed with three certificated teachers and three paraeducators who will provide play-based math instruction to participants.

While instruction is geared toward elementary students, preschoolers and middle school students are also encouraged to join in. The Mathmobile will run on Mondays between June 24 and Aug. 12.

The Books on the Bus is back for the fifth summer. Students can check out books, read with an adult and engage in fun reading games. Books on the Bus runs on Wednesdays from June 26 to Aug. 14.

Times and locations for both programs will be:

• 9:15-10:15 a.m. – Mobile Estates on 67th Avenue

• 10:30-11:30 a.m. – Crown Ridge (Crown Ridge Boulevard and Vista)

• 12:15-1:15 p.m. – Timbers Apartments

• 1:30-2:30 p.m. – Presidents Elementary

• 2:45-3:45 p.m. – Eagle Creek Elementary
