Ninety in-person and remote students in grades K-5 in the South Country Central School District continued their learning in July by participating in the district’s Summer Reading and Math Program, an immersive and interactive curriculum of lessons and activities.

“Students received learning instruction in a joyful atmosphere,” said Summer School Principal Victoria Williams. “We aimed to provide a meaningful and engaging experience.”

The three-week program featured group reading and math learning activities centered on the weekly themes of “Learning Is Our Superpower,” “Growing as We Learn” and “Aloha, We Are Learners.” Students also played games that incorporated movement, such as math hopscotch, and took part in exciting science, technology, engineering, art and math lessons.

All students received lunch from Long Island Cares and were treated to props for the themed days, provided through the generosity of donors, that included superhero masks, slap bracelets, sunglasses and glow sticks, as well as books and school supplies.

The district also held a five-week academic summer program attended by 284 middle and high school students. Middle school students worked to improve their math, reading and writing skills, while high schoolers were afforded the opportunity to recoup credits. The program has made it possible for eight seniors to participate in a summer graduation ceremony, slated for Aug. 11.
