Family Resource Director Amy Newton and Glasscock Elementary School staff invited the community to a special presentation to highlight their week of summer school Friday afternoon. The presentation included a physical education demonstration with Danny Marks. It also included two songs that focus around the theme of summer school this year, which was oceanic life and the world they live in. According to Newton, 104 students participated at summer school at GES. When all lessons were complete at the end of the week, the students went on a field trip to Newport Aquarium.
"I have had children all through the school year asking when we are going to do summer camp again," Newton said. "They love it."
According to Newton, the Family Resource Center will be doing an after school program at Glasscock Elementary every Monday and Wednesday and Calvary Elementary every Tuesday and Thursday after school that involves 60 minutes of physical activity and homework assistance. The fall program will be titled, “Walk Across Marion County."
