As part of Project Open Door, the 21st Century Community Learning Center at Henkle Middle School, the school is offering a five-week summer program for children -- Project Summer Fun.
Project Summer Fun will operate from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., June 17 to July 19.
It 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 which will occur every Thursday.
One of the daily sessions of Project Summer Fun will be "Hands-on" projects. These sessions will include such activities as computer projects, three-dimensional puzzle making, puppet making, paper model making, buddy projects with preschool students, and more.
Project Summer Fun will also offer both breakfast and lunch to any child age 2-18 free of charge. Meals are provided by the Summer Food Services Program.
Parents are asked to register their children by May 24. Registration forms are available at Whitson Elementary or Henkle Middle schools. 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 coordinator of Project Summer Fun. She will present a summary of the program to all fourth grade students and parents on May 17 from 12:30 to 12:50 p.m. at Whitson Elementary.
