​​​​​Sec​ond Annual Summer Camp — A Success!

August 2013

During summer 2013, the Willow Creek hallways were filled with incoming kindergarteners and first graders participating in the 2nd annual Summer Learning Camp. This fun, academic program was based on the thematic units Silly Science, Dr. Seuss on the Loose, and Deep Blue Sea.

The Willow Creek Kindergarten Team developed this camp to better prepare our kids for kindergarten and first grade. The goal for each session was to strengthen literacy and math concepts. In addition, technology was integrated throughout each day to support 21st century learning.

The profits from the camp are used to purchase materials that enhance the primary program at Willow Creek. Five iPads were purchased last year to support young learners.

As teachers, we are thrilled with the success of this program. But don't take our word for it! Here are some quotes from our happy campers: 

  • I love making the projects. — Faye 

  • We have fun at recess. — Eric 

  • We went to the computer lab. — Abigail 

  • We learned about fish! — Evan​
