Mid-Del Schools kicked off summer school with fun activities.
The school district hosts its summer school at Midwest City Elementary and Epperly Heights Elementary for students Pre-K through 4th grade, at Midwest City Middle School for 5th through 7th grade and Del City High School for current 8th grade students.
The summer program runs Monday through Thursday. The days begin with breakfast at 8:15 a.m. followed by activity periods and lunch at 12:30 p.m.
“I think that you’ll have lots of smiles on kids’ faces like they’re happy to be here. It’s just a really positive experience for the summer,” said head teacher at Midwest City Elementary Kasey Manning.
Mid-Del strives to provide students with enhanced learning to prepare for the upcoming school year.
“It’s not a catch up because there’s not enough time but it’s extra practice for some of the standards they need to master for first grade going into second grade,” said Joy Parker, an elementary teacher.
Students participate in activities such as art, music, PE and library to help make the summer more enjoyable.
“The teachers work hard to bring some fun activities in that enhance those practices that they need.
