Highland Adventist School recently hosted its first Kindergarten Summer Day Camp.
The event provided an opportunity for kindergarten graduates and prospective kindergarteners to brush up on learning skills during a day of fun activities.
Suzan Wilson, a certified early childhood educator, led a variety of activities that included phonics, writing, math, physical education, Bible and art. Teacher Joel Stecker led as the students learned about hot air balloons and soda rockets. The students counted and sorted buttons, wrote in journals, painted bird houses, listened to stories, practiced phonics, enjoyed healthy snacks and generally enjoyed a great morning.

"I appreciate our staff pulling together to create this learning opportunity for kindergarteners during the summer," said Cheryl Jacko, principal. "The children seemed to really enjoy the morning and, hopefully, refreshed some of their skills. We are looking at the possibility of expanding the program next year."
