Edison Local School students can take part in summer programs designed to build learning skills.
Registration is being taken until Friday for Summer ’22 programs which will be held on June 7-July 21 at Edison High School and Elkhorn Valley Christian Service Camp in Bergholz. The district will offer traditional summer school for grades K-8 and 9-12 on June 15-July 21 at EHS. Students will attend on Tuesday to Thursday from 9 a.m. to 11 with elementary and middle school pupils honing their math and reading abilities while high schoolers participate in a credit recovery program and concentrate on core courses.
District Assistant Superintendent Julie Kireta said breakfast and lunch will be provided while students can be transported from a community stop or nearest school, not school bus stops or door to door, but parents and guardians may also drive the students themselves. Transport will be provided from Stanton and John Gregg Elementary and EHS for the Summer Games Camp.
“Grades K-8 can gain extra practice and improve their skills while grades 9-12 can earn credits toward graduation,” Kireta added.
The Wildcat Day Camp will be offered at Elkhorn Valley from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. with grades 7-9 attending on June 7-9; grades 4-6 attending June 14-16; and grades 1-3 on June 28-30. Activities vary by grade and include a rock wall, high and low ropes and tests on team building and communicating effectively to complete challenges.
There will be no programming from July 4-8 in observance of the Independence Day holiday. Registration forms must be completed no later than May 20 and mailed to Edison High School, 9890 State Route 152, Richmond, Ohio, 43944.
