CES students have fun during summer Wings Express program

Campbellsville Elementary School students recently had fun during the summer Wings Express program.

 

The program, which was for kindergarten, first-, second- and third-grade students, was June 4-29.

 

Students learned about reading and math, and had fun during special programs with local community members.

 

In the second week, students had fun with crafts, built with STEM blocks and learned to bake homemade muffins and pancakes.

 

Students made slime, painted picture frames and learned to weave.

 

Angie Freeman, expanded foods and nutrition program assistant at Taylor County Extension Office, talked to students about nutrition.

 

Students also visited the Taylor County Public Library, and had visiting the Green River Lake Visitor’s Center.

 

And, to try and beat the summer heat, students had fun playing water games outside.

 

Wings Express is a program to help students with homework and other activities. Students receive help with reading, math, science, technology, social skills and more. They also participate in activities to learn about nutrition.

 

The program is free to those who apply and are accepted.

 

During the school year, Wings Express students stay at school from 3 to 5 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. There are no activities on Fridays.

 

Students are given a snack and then divided into groups to participate in programs that best fit their needs.

 

About 90 students participate in the Wings Express program.

 

Doretha Sanders is Wings Express director.

 

For more information about the program, call Sanders at (270) 465-4561.
