OnPoint on WACH Fox: Summer learning for children, adults
COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) - This week on OnPoint on WACH Fox we look at some unique summer learning opportunities for children and adults.
There's only a few more weeks left in the school year which means kids will be home 24-7 for a few months. So what will they be doing while you're at work? It's a good question.
Richland County School District One is offering some great summer programs to help young people avoid summer learning loss, which also known as the "summer slide." Best of all, some of those programs are free of charge and they are also open to students from outside the school district.
Children can stay busy with a lot of fun activities like swimming, ?eld trips, arts and crafts projects, robotics and even culinary arts.
The Columbia Urban League is also hosting some important informational forums on how to better serve the region's senior citizen population and keep them safe.
