The Community Learning Centers STARS of the Wood County Educational Service Center stayed cool by the pool this summer. This summer, students at six sites in Wood County loaded up buses and took over 200 students on field trips like Imagination Station, Sauder Village, Toledo Zoo, and Maumee Indoor Theater.
When the STARS students weren’t traveling around in Northern Ohio, they were beating the heat at our community pools in Pemberville and Woodville.
STARS students also had special community visitors from their local fire departments, police stations, and libraries, and even grew their own vegetables.
The program followed the “Fifty Nifty United States” curriculum which included reading, math, STEM, crafts, and physical activities centered on the United States. They utilized SuccessMaker, a program that keeps them on target to beat the dreaded summer academic slide.
Now it’s that time to jump out of the pool and dive back into the school year. STARS will be using its own curriculum, “Discovery Zones,” where students will get to work on their reading, math, and homework skills, STEAM projects, crafts, and much more.
The Community Learning Centers’ before and after-school programs are located at 10 different elementary schools this school year throughout Wood and Lucas counties – at Elmwood, North Baltimore, Bowling Green City Schools (Kenwood, Conneaut, Crim), Eastwood, Northwood, Rossford , Lake, and Maumee. Registrations are now open at www.wcesc.org or by contacting Susie Youngpeter at 419-354-9010 ext. #248.
