My students need supplies like wood cubes, yarn and foil for projects we are creating for our summer enrichment program.
My students are dealing with many difficulties. Besides being in a high poverty area with many single-parent families, families in crisis, and a high percentage of students with ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder, as well as a large population of English language learners, many have limited life experiences due to these issues. Offering experiences this deficit affects more than the experiential realm, it also causes students to have a limited vocabulary, reduced engagement in school, and a bleak outlook for their future.
This summer, we are hosting a summer enrichment program for 3 schools in our district that not only teach, but provide what is often the only nurturing and encouragement these students receive!
This program's goal is to inspire these students to persevere through life's challenges so that they might make the choices that lead them to a successful and satisfying future!
I work with 3 schools that are considered "emerging". Our students come from high poverty and are traditionally among the lowest achievers in our parish. As a result, much of our emphasis is placed on the struggling learners. Our on and above level students can often be overlooked in this scenario. We want to amend this.
This summer in an effort to address this frequently under-addressed population, our parish is offering a free enrichment day camp for the on and above level learners of our emerging schools!
Our camp will be divided into 4 thematic units that will include STEAM, writing, art, broadcasting, and career explorations activities. The supplies requested like craft sticks, masking tape and chalk will be used to foster creativity, boldness, and communication and writing skills. For example, some of the projects include, "save the baby" floatation devices, creating crystal names, building a better balloon car, creating bubbles and bubble makers, and many other activities! We will then use various Google platforms to write about our experiences.
