The EOC Summer Program has come to a close for this year. The longer summer format allowed for a lot of hands-on learning. Below are some of the activities the students participated in. Read to the end to learn about the program during the school year.
- The students and tutors took field trips to businesses around Indiana, such 1st Source Bank and PBS.
- The students planted a garden. To experience “garden fresh” taste, a couple of our staff members added their own home garden bounty to make salsa.
- The students made their own news show complete with writing a script and filming different segments.
- The program participants toured Trine University, getting a feel for what college life is like. They also visited the Innovation One center on campus.
- Tutors led a building project that involved measuring, calculating perimeter, and learning how to use tools safely.
After-school tutoring starts back up in September 2016. It is available throughout the school year for students in 2nd grade through 12th grade. Tutors help students with homework and also incorporate some of the hands-on learning that keeps students engaged.
College Club is also available for high school students. Students prepare for the SAT/ACT, work on writing and math skills, and explore career paths, college choices, and scholarship opportunities.
Remember: When it comes time to sign up for the summer program, students in after-school tutoring are first on the list.
Our services are FREE. Do not wait until you receive the first report card of the school year to start tutoring. Call today to learn how to register with the EOC.
