Summer Program Available to Students at Four Schools
Thursday, May 4, 2017
Last month, the Liverpool Central School District was awarded a federal 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant that will enable Contact Community Services, Inc., to provide a summer-learning program to students at four LCSD elementary schools – Chestnut Hill Elementary, Donlin Drive Elementary, Liverpool Elementary and Long Branch Elementary.
The Summer Bridge Program is scheduled from July 10 through August 3. It will take place four days a week (Monday to Thursday) from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Students entering first through sixth grade in September 2017 are eligible for the program. Breakfast, lunch and transportation will be provided.
Parents recently received a flyer and application regarding the program, which is designed for children to retain their academic skills over the summer while having fun. It provides math and ELA academic assistance along with exciting and engaging enrichment activities such as science, dance, cooking, sports and more.
Each school will hold two registration nights for interested families:
Monday, May 8th & Tuesday, May 9th at Donlin Drive Elementary
Wednesday, May 10th & Thursday, May 11th Chestnut Hill Elementary
Monday, May 15th and Tuesday, May 16th at Long Branch Elementary
Wednesday, May 17th & Thursday, May 18th at Liverpool Elementary
In addition to the Summer Bridge Program, the nearly $1.2 million 21st CCLC grant from the U.S. Department of Education will allow the district to offer age- and grade-appropriate educational opportunities during the regular school year, including academic support, behavior intervention strategies, social-emotional development activities and family literacy activities. The programs will be available through the 2021 school year (depending on federal funding allocations).
