Project Open Door offers summer fun for children

Henkle Middle School is offering a 5-week summer program for children.

As part of Project Open Door, the 21st Century Learning Center at Henkle Middle School, the school is offering a 5-week summer program for children, "Project Summer Fun."

The program will operate Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. beginning June 25 and ending July 27.

Project Summer Fun will offer breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday to any child, age 2-18, free of charge. The meals are provided by the Summer Food Services Program.

The summer program is open to all current fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh graders for a fee of $10 per child. The fee is to defray the cost of transportation for field trips every Thursday.

Hands-on projects scheduled for the summer will include such activities as computer projects, three-dimensional puzzle making, puppet making, paper model making, buddy projects with preschool students and more.

Parents need to register their child by May 25. Registration forms are available at either Whitson Elementary or Henkle Middle School. There is limited space and children will be accepted on a first-come first-serve basis. All children registered are requested to attend daily.

Camille Hinman, Henkle Middle School art teacher, is the coordinator of the program.

For information call Hinman at 493-1502.
