Head Start Summer Program Update
July 2 – 6, 2018
The Grade 8 Head Start Summer Program was a wonderful opportunity for a small group of our incoming Grade 8 students to get a feel for their new environment as well as meet and interact with their fellow classmates and their new Principal.
Each day consisted of an Academic portion consisting of Grade 8 Math and English in the morning. While in the afternoon a variety of activities were planned for the students such as Ultimate Frisbee, Lawn and 5 -pin Bowling; Swimming, Crayfish Fishing, and Kite Flying down at the beach.
We concluded our last day together with a pizza luncheon and an individual parting gift for every student. Each day the students were enthusiastically motivated by the prospect of earning a “blow pop” – the magical two-in-one treat – that they deliciously enjoyed. A food donation for the Soup Kitchen was included as part of the Christmas in July initiative.
All- in- all it was another huge step in our journey towards opening day in September 2018. A special thanks to all of the students and parents who participated in the program. Have a wonderful rest of the summer.
Mr. Michel DesLauriers
