Christ the King School offers summer programs in Northwest Ohio
Many schools are offering summer programs for students due to the pandemic and the potential loss of learning. Christ the King School operates summer courses.
TOLEDO, Ohio – It’s no surprise that this school year has been drastically different from years past.
With all the changes from COVID-19, Christ the King School asked families what they think about introducing a summer school program for students.
“It was a very popular option. So we looked at the summer programs and we partnered up with Think Stretch and we’re going to have this three week summer program for K-8 students,” he said. said director Steve Urbanski.
Each day, students will start with reading and math, then end the day with a STEM-based activity, such as digging up dinosaur fossils and building a rocket, with 5th student Killian Mason on the moon.
“Launch rockets! Because that’s really what I’m doing this. I’m really interested. We’re going to build them and then launch them,” Mason said.
He also says he can’t wait to spend more time with his classmates.
“It will be more like a normal year, like in school but in a summer climate,” he said.
Urbanski says they expect around 75 to 100 students to attend this summer, which is about 25% of their student body.
Depending on how things go after the three weeks, he says there’s a possibility they can keep it for future summers.
“Once that is done in a few weeks, we can interview the families, ask them what we can do best, what we would change, and then we will see what we need to do,” Urbanski said.
The summer program runs from June 7 to 24.
