CES Wings Express students create their own planets

Campbellsville Elementary School Wings Express students recently learned about the planets at Taylor County Public Library.

 

Wings Express students attended a two-week summer camp recently to have fun and learn together.

 

Students worked with teachers to sharpen their reading and math skills, while also having fun on several special trips and hearing from guest speakers and readers.

 

The group took a trip to Taylor County Public Library.

 

Students listened to books about the planets and then made their own out of watercolor paints and oil pastel crayons.

 

They named their planets and were asked to describe them.

 

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, which is for students in kindergarten through third grade, is free to those who apply and are accepted.

 

Doug Holmes is Wings Express director.

 

For more information, or to donate to or volunteer with the program, call Holmes at (270) 465-4561.
