Camps give students opportunities to learn chess, karate and more
Third through fifth graders in Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) had an opportunity over spring break to learn fun and challenging activities while strengthening their reading skills during the district’s “Literacy &” camps.
The free camps, which were developed and coordinated by the JCPS Office of Diversity, Equity and Poverty (DEP) Programs, combined reading with character-building activities such as chess, karate and robotics.
At "Literacy & Robotics" camp at Rangeland Elementary, students put their JCPS Backpack of Success Skills to work to innovate and collaborate.
At “Literacy & Hip Hop” camp at Meyzeek Middle School, students used art and music to express themselves in a fun, engaging way.
Camps were also held at Engelhard Elementary, Shelby Traditional Academy, Farnsley Middle School, and Frost Sixth-Grade Academy
