We look forward to bringing back our popular summer camps June 18-22 taught by our wonderful OLG teachers.
Summer Camps June 18-22nd
Adventures in Literacy! 9:00am – 3:00pm
Incoming Kindergarten-3rd Graders $350
Come spend a week exploring gardens through literature, writing, and cooperative literacy activities! Taught by Ms. Hobbs and Mrs. Hoch, the class will take advantage of the summer weather with outdoor learning opportunities at the OLG campus and neighboring High Point Park. We will provide leveled differentiation, including phonics, phonemic awareness, and sight word skill development, as well as challenging enrichment activities for students of every level. Our hopes are to help students continue to grow as readers/ writers and keep them excited about literacy as they enter the summer months. Activities will be based on the Common Core Standards for English Language Arts. Taught by Ms. Hobbs and Mrs. Hoch.
