Approximately 220 Kindergarten-Grade 5 students are eagerly participating in the Summer Learning Program (SLP) to sustain and/or improve their literacy and numeracy skills while engaging in exciting cultural and recreational activities.
The SLP started on Monday, July 9 and continues until Friday, July 27. Classes take place from 8:30am to 2:30pm at three schools: Holy Cross in Sault Ste. Marie; Our Lady of Lourdes in Elliot Lake and St. Mary in Massey.
At all three SLP sites children enjoy a balanced day of academics, recreation and Indigenous perspective and culture, under the guidance of qualified, caring teachers.
Kindergarten-Grade 5 students learn reading, writing, mathematics, and participate in daily physical activities, interactive instructional games, field trips and presentations from various community partners.
Building on the Board’s focus on 21st century teaching and learning, students enjoy computational thinking and coding, as well as robotics.
This is the fifth year in which Huron-Superior Catholic District School Board offers programs during the summer to support and supplement student achievement and well-being in Grades K-5.
The SLP is delivered in partnership with the Ministry of Education and the Council of Directors of Education (CODE).
