Larger summer school session completed

The Cedar Grove-Belgium School District last week completed its redesigned summer school session that included a wider variety of offerings, shorter classes and higher pay for teachers. A survey of staff last year showed support for a three-week session ending before July 4. The mix of enrichment and remedial classes were 75 minutes each instead of two hours, and teacher pay increased for the first time in three years, from $20 to $27 per hour. Students enjoying learning included (from top photo) fourth-grader Brooklyn Cherney had her hair stand up when she put her hands on a Van de Graff generator in crazy science class; first-grader Logan Fountaine gave a thumbs up to his London Bridge made of LEGOs in build it! class; third-grader Aspen Westphal worked on her art project of a dancing girl on a hill holding a heart card in mega murals; fifth-grader Jocelyn Burmesch worked on an art piece of her name while sixth-grader Anna Jerabek progressed on her chicken piece in mega murals; and (from left) Kieran Williams, Emerson Rulli, Thomas Wiesner, Leah Mamerow, Ava Peterson, Emma McGilvra, Lauren Lueth, Mackenzie Luebke and Laila Arrowood prepped apples, strawberries and grapes to pair with fruit dip in cooks and books.
