It was just a typical Monday afternoon at our Bancroft Elementary Summer Program. This year, we are serving over 50 students at this site and the program runs every day from 1230-6pm. We are especially lucky to have a diverse and talented staff who make up a great team! One teacher loves the outdoors, another used to work with youth doing playwriting, another is a special education teacher... We also have TAs who have worked with our students before and have developed special relationships with them. I had a chance to observe the last hour of programs, and here is what I found!
Some students were engaged in Yoga class... others were doing role playing (one trying to build an imaginary wall and the other trying to get through it!)... and others were outside playing Asian hopscotch! What fun!
