Summer Enrichment (Rising K-2 or 3-5)


For all grade levels

Hello, Zanetti Elementary School families! My name is Krishna Longanecker, and I will be Zanetti’s Teacher Guide for the Summer Exploration Program.  During the school year, I am the new librarian at Boland Elementary School.  I'll be holding virtual office hours to support your child as s/he works through the three summer exploration projects.  My hours are:

  • Mondays and Wednesdays,3:00-4:00
  • Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11:00-12:00
  • Fridays, 10:00-11:00

I can also be available by appointment, if another time might be a better fit for your schedule.  You can reach me through Unified Classroom or through my email:

What are the projects?

Who am I? My History – An autobiographical project, students will explore and tell their own story: their experiences, their interests, their family, their community, and their history. Student-created projects might include writing a short memoir, a self-documentary video, or a visual timeline of their life and history.

Who do I want to become? My Future – An aspirational project, students will think about what they want in the future and research the necessary steps to realize their goals. Student-created products might include a personal learning plan, a presentation on their goals and steps to achieve them, or photo collage depicting their desired future.

How will school help me realize my dreams? My Pathway – A design project, students will research and envision the kind of school and learning experience that would best support them to realize their dreams. Student-created products might include a sample school schedule, a visual depiction of their ideal school, or a newspaper opinion piece on how school be designed.

Materials for the projects will be posted July 7th, around 2 p.m.  Please message me on Unified Classroom or my email:
