Wayne County School District Summer School has helped catch students up in certain subjects, while also keeping the summer slide from happening. Sometimes, especially the younger students experience a "summer slide" so summer school and enrichment camps help children to be ready for the start of school in August. Each school has featured different themes or means to help build on students' educations in age appropriate ways.
Bell Elementary presented their final play of the school year to their classmates called America’s Tallest Tale. The second-grade classes studied a unit in their CKLA Reading program on tall tales where they learn advanced vocabulary words as they discuss: Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, and John Henry. The musical that the children performed both for Walker Early Learning Center kindergarten students, followed by another afternoon performance for parents, is about those famous characters.
Bell Elementary students participated in End-Of-The-Year Awards Program. The parents and families enjoyed seeing their children receiving their awards.
“The Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round” like the children’s song lyrics go and that was certainly the case for the brand new Lunchroom Express mobile unit on Tuesday, June 6th as it pulled out of it’s home base from the Wayne County Middle School kitchen loaded with freshly cooked hot dogs, fries, baked beans, bananas and a choice of milk flavors.
