Students enjoy summer of interactive learning



Nineteen sticky-faced fourth graders on Thursday enjoyed an afternoon of ice cream and outdoor fun at Covington Street Elementary School after participating in the Read to Achieve summer reading camp.

Nearly 60 rising fourth graders throughout the district will be going back to school with sharper reading skills this year after spending six weeks participating in the camp — although some may need a few days to recuperate from any brain freeze incurred by copious amounts of ice cream.

Students had been meeting at Covington Street Elementary Mondays through Thursdays from 9 a.m. to noon.

“We learned about the main idea and context clues,” said Leala Jackson. She enjoyed reading stories about Junie B. Jones and participating in small groups.

“The camp has been successful with excellent learning experiences under the supervision of strong reading teachers,” said Rachel Burris, the district’s elementary education director. “Parents have been supportive and students have worked hard to show growth in their reading skills.”
