Back to School: Holy Rosary School's summer learning program comes to a close
Summer is almost over, and while many spent the last couple of months playing outside or lounging at home, the learning never stopped for some students at Holy Rosary School.
For the past two months, over 100 students took part in the school's summer enrichment program - filled with learning in the morning and outdoor activities in the afternoon.
Students get to test their knowledge with hands-on projects and create artwork, ending their days by unwinding with a mindfulness yoga class.
For principal Maryann Fusco, her mission is to bring a well-rounded education to the students at Holy Rosary while still letting them have fun in the learning process.
"All of these activities are twofold: one, it's an opportunity for the children to have fun, to learn a little bit more about themselves, but also to learn - they're having so much fun, they often don't even realize they're learning," said Fusco.
As the new school year rolls around, Holy Rosary is prepared to welcome its students with more enrichment activities like math and science clubs, archery and a dance program this year.
The program ends on Aug. 25.
