Students in The Lauderdale County School District are learning how to think outside the box during the summer reading camp.
Both Northeast and Southeast Elementary Schools are hosting this camp and it helps students align with the Mississippi literacy law requirement.
The camp is covered by a grant through the Mississippi Department of Education in the total amount of fifty-thousand dollars.
Second and third grade students will participate in phonics, comprehension and test taking activities to enhance their thinking skills helping them get on reading skill level
“We had some words that we had to say, and they said if you don’t know the word; just spell it out and after these few weeks when we get out of summer school I’m going to be happy because I’m getting smarter; I’m learning.” Said Justice Curtis, second grade student.
