For the new CE Value blog posts, WDMCS Community Education will share news about our six values: people focus, respect, relevance, enrichment, fun, and team unity. This month, we wanted to highlight enrichment.

One of the ways WDMCS Community Education works to increase enrichment is by providing as many relevant enrichment opportunities as possible. The Summer of Learning programs encompass many of those opportunities. Whether students need a summer learning boost or want a fun way to expand their skills and knowledge, the Summer of Learning provides many activities they can choose from.

Here are some of the enriching Summer of Learning programs that were offered this summer:

Art Adventures — Students learned about different materials and techniques while exercising their own creativity.

Band Bash, Jazz Jam, and Summer Strings — The summer instrumental music programs offered students a chance to keep their skills sharp and build confidence and new friendships.

Be the Boss! Youth Entrepreneurship Camp — Students learned about building a business and the spirit of entrepreneurship before trying it themselves, creating business plans, marketing materials, and products for their own companies.

Preschool Creations — Preschoolers learned to experiment with art and decorate cakes in these new classes all about getting an early start to creativity.

Summer Adventures in Learning (SAIL) — SAIL offers refresher classes in reading, writing, and math, as well as enrichment opportunities such as chess, computers, art, science, sign language, and much more.

Science Exploration — This class let students explore a variety of science subjects, from weather to dinosaurs or forensics and rocketry.
