We had a wonderful turnout at NSES this summer for enrichment! In the summer of 2021 we ran 8 programs. This summer we happily expanded and we were able to welcome over 140 students to participate in 15 different programs taught by 17 NSES teachers. The programs included Bucket Drumming, Science Adventures, Model Rocket Club, Be Your Best Club, Playful Pals, Ocean Club, Small Group Tutoring, Story time Standards, STEM Scholars, Mindful Moments, Eco Art, Artful Narratives, Math Ramp Up, Math Gone Wild, and Summer Reading Book Club.
The Summer Enrichment Program at the secondary level was a resounding success. NSMS and NSHS teachers offered a wide range of academic and enrichment courses for students to socialize, learn something new, and have an opportunity to engage in activities with their peers. Over 110 students in grades 5 through 12 participated in an array of offerings. The North Smithfield Summer Enrichment grew by leaps and bounds in only its second season. Sessions Included: The American Red Cross Babysitting Class, The Welcome to NSHS: New Student and 9th Grade Orientation, Summer Math Enrichment, Greenhouse and Gardening, Paint Party, Bracelet Making, A Volleyball Clinic, The Kindness Rocks Project, and he Book Club Brunch.
