'Fractured Fairytales'

FUN AND GAMES - The first of four weeks of 21st Century Community Learning Centers Summer Learning Camps has been going strong this week at Carr Elementary School. Students have learned about fairytales during this first week of camp and have learned how to deconstruct them in order to make new, fractured versions of the old stories that have been passed down through generations. They have also learned the difference between fairytales and true stories. In addition to the learning sessions, the students have had fun playing games and making handcrafts. They also performed readers' theatre type plays for parents and other family members on Thursday of camp. Three more weeks of camps will be offered at Carr - during the weeks of June 22-26, June 29-July 3, and July 6-July 10. Next week's camp will focus on time travels while the week of June 29 will be concerned with superheroes both real and fictional. During the week of July 6-10, campers will conduct numerous STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) projects. It's not too late to sign up for these camps. Any student who was in the second grade through seventh grade at Fulton Independent during the 2014-2015 school year is eligible to attend these free summer camps. Breakfast and lunch will be served each day and some sort of field trip is connected to each week's theme. In order to find out how to enroll your student in camp, contact Site Director Kim Jobe at kimberly.jobe@fultonind.kyschools.us or bring your child to the cafeteria entrance at Carr Elementary before 8 a.m. on the Monday each camp week begins.
