School summer enrichment programs a big hit in Salem
“We challenged our staff to create programs our students could participate in this summer and that would keep their attention and continue their academic growth,” said Superintendent Michael Delahanty.
Enrollment was up at all levels of the summer programs, particularly for the enrichment programs offered predominantly to elementary and middle school levels.
The district initially offered 21 enrichment programs for the summer, three of which were traditional programs offered in the past, including art, musical theater and zumba.
At the top of the list was Salem Explores, which saw 77 students take part in at least one of the four weeks it was offered.
This year, the musical theater program put on a production of “Annie” that was attended by more than 300 people.
In the middle school, the district used software that helped students individually progress and improve their math and reading levels.
