Summer Learning Program 2020 Highlights
The Superior North Catholic District School Board was pleased to offer its very first virtual Summer Learning Program to students across the Board! We had 12 students enrolled in our Kindergarten to Grade 5 classroom and 4 students enrolled in our Grade 6 to 8 class.
Google Classroom and Google Meet were used as the online learning platform.
The focus of the program was literacy and numeracy with opportunities to participate in a variety of experiential online learning activities to keep students actively involved. Students engaged in STEM activities (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math), Zumba with Andrea, Boot camp with Kim and drawing lessons with Rebekah!
Students and Summer Learning Staff also learned how to make three kinds of healthy overnight oats as demonstrated LIVE to them by Mr. Hart!
Students were encouraged to continue their love of learning during the summer even following the end of the program as all families were gifted with “Math in the Cards'' and two decks of cards so they could continue to make math practice fun. Students were also encouraged to visit the SNCDSB Learning from home resources available on our board website. As we continue to support student mental health during Covid 19, parents and guardians may also want to click on the following websites for additional information and support - School Mental Health Ontario and the Canadian Mental Health Association.

One of the literacy activities was writing a storybook with the program “Story jumper.” Students had created stories by using their thoughts and writing skills. We have saved the e-copies and shared with parents to show the creativity of their children.
