Summer Programs Bring Sports Learning to Students

This summer, Baldwin Park Unified School District (BPUSD) students have the opportunity to participate in a series of enriching field trips as part of the District’s significantly expanded before- and after-school programs. Supported by Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELOP) funds, these activities are designed to engage and educate students beyond the traditional classroom setting.

At Topgolf in Montebello, elementary and middle school students learned the essentials of golfing, including how to hold a club, swing, and aim. The day was capped off with a fun lunch buffet, adding to the excitement of the outing.

A highlight of the summer was an exclusive tour of SoFi Stadium. During the tour, students learned about sports history, the stadium's architecture, sustainability, and technology. The experience was made even more memorable by a surprise visit from Rams wide receiver Puka Nacua, who stopped to say hello to a group of BPUSD students.

Over 900 BPUSD students also attended an Angels game, where they enjoyed a favorite pastime, and popular game snacks. A special moment came when a BPUSD transitional kindergarten student was invited onto the field to make the "Play Ball" announcement, marking the start of the game.

For many students, these outings were their first experience with such events, providing hands-on learning about sports. These activities reflect the District’s commitment to offering a wide array of enriching opportunities that foster both academic and personal growth throughout the year.
