CES Wings Express students visit Green River Lake

Campbellsville Elementary School Wings Express students recently had fun visiting Green River Lake.

 

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.

 

On the final day of camp, the group took a trip to the Green River Lake Visitors Center.

 

Students learned about the importance of wearing life jackets, checked out the fish tank and toured the center.

 

They also took a nature walk and made picture frames with items they found during a scavenger hunt.

 

Students used rocks, sticks, leaves, moss, clovers and much more.

 

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.
