21st Century Learning Center Grant Summer Program’s a Huge Success
August 25, 2022 - The Red Creek Century School District hosted multiple summer programs through the 21st Century Learning Center Grant. This was the sixth year of the program. More than 130 Red Creek students were involved.
The program offered daily STEM activities, crafts, recreation, ELA and swimming lessons. Special events included roller-skating parties, Dan the Magic Man’s performances and balloon animal classes, and tie dye days with Marnie Meddaugh.
All campers grades K-5 participated in “One School, One Book” program during Camp. This program included crafts and activities along with everyone reading “Nim’s Island”. This program culminated with the Camp watching the movie version of “Nim’s Island” and enjoying a popcorn party.
Middle School Summer School students were offered 21st Century programming during the afternoons. This group enjoyed on-site swimming and recreation, roller skating, crafts and went on field trips to the local bowling alleys and Fair Haven State Park for a kayaking trip.
The Grant also offered the sport camps which included basketball, soccer, softball, golf, and physical conditioning.
21st Century Grant and Peaceful Schools held Theater Camp again this Summer. 12 students in grades 5-8 enjoyed two weeks of theater camp which ended with an hour-long performance of singing and dancing. Kids learned blocking, set design, choreography and much more during camp.
The 21st Century Learning Center Grant is also responsible for dozens of programs throughout the school year. Details on Fall programs are still being worked out. Information will be announced and posted on the district’s website, rccsd.org, under the Community Center tab.
