BCSD Students Participate in Summer Learning Programs

July 2, 2019 - Even though the school year came to an end, several campuses across BCSD were still buzzing with a variety of educational and learning opportunities.  Students at Stella Hills, Longfellow, Emerson and Casa Loma participated in a revamped Summer Learning Program. Thanks to the Comprehensive Support & Improvement (CSI) grant, the schools were provided with several activities such as computer coding, art projects, research projects, computer presentations, and more.

At Longfellow Elementary, students took part in several educational assignments. Parents were invited to the campus to view the students’ Summer Learning Academic Showcase, where they were able to preview their students work and finished projects.

Isaac Besero, a 5th grade participant in Longfellow’s summer program, said, “I liked getting the chance to be with my friends from the school year and also making new friends.  In the classroom, I really enjoyed learning coding with the Spheros.”

Andy Medina, also a 5th grader in the Longfellow summer program, said, “My favorite thing about the summer program was when we got to use the Spheros and what we learned about coding.”

An average of 350 students have participated each day in this year’s Summer Learning Program. An additional summer learning experience is being provided at McKinley Elementary School. The Extended Learning Program is offering the Agriculture Academy through July 18th.  The school recently opened an outdoor garden which provides the perfect setting for the attending students to participate in agricultural learning.   

Migrant Students will also be participating in their Summer Academy beginning July 7th. Thank you to all the teachers and staff that have helped make this a memorable summer for these students, and thank you to the parents who ensured their child attended school to participate in these opportunities.
