DD2 keeping education cool during the summer months

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Dorchester School District Two is offering a summer program for elementary students and their parents to make learning fun.

Spann Elementary is one of three DD2 Parent Learning Involvement Centers meant to serve students and their families during their children's summer vacation. The purpose of the center is to keep young minds active over the summer months, while giving parent's the tools they need to enhance their child's learning through play.

From Leap Pads to books, and much more, students can check out learning materials to use at home for free. They can also learn a new language in the process.

Sandra Greenman and her 7-year-old daughter Samantha are learning Spanish at the camp. Spanish is one of six foreign languages offered at the center.

"I have advanced a whole lot and I'm able to speak a little more each day, and able to teach Samantha," Greenman said.

In addition to students being able to check out games and books, the center also provides storytime and play for little ones.

The Parent Involvement Centers are at Spann Elementary, Knightsville Elementary, and Windsor Hill Arts Infused Elementary School. The program is open to DD2 parents and children up to fifth grade.
