Resurrection Catholic School students are back to their Cherry Hill classrooms for the new school year, but the school was a busy place in the summer.
Late July and early August students entering grades one through six attended camps to sharpen their skills.
Students entering grades 1-3 had the opportunity to attend Primary Enrichment Camp three half days for two weeks. They studied the state of Hawaii during week one and volcanoes during week two.
Resurrection teachers Pat Cara, Fran Dorety and Karen Lucci used cross-curricular activities in the program. Each week ended with a treat – a “Christmas in Hawaii Luau” ended the Hawaii lesson, while a volcano building activity ended the volcano lesson.
Students entering grades 3-6 were offered SPACE Camp by teachers Debbie Shumaker and Sharon Whitehead. SPACE (Summer Program of Active Curriculum Enrichment) was held Monday-Thursday evenings for the first two weeks of August.
Each week, students participated in activities, including dissection (perch fish and frogs), Geography Twister and a math ring toss game. Each week ended on the Mt. Shuhead Volcano – students answered review questions for their turn at sliding down the slip-n-slide of lava (pancake mix dyed red) into the lava pit (red and orange Jell-O).
