DECATUR -- School may be out for the summer for most kids but, for a small band of youth, school is back in session for the summer.
Northside Elementary in Decatur reopened its doors at 7:45 a.m., June 13, for the first day of summer school. About 30 students from the Decatur area took part in the two-week summer school sponsored by the Decatur after-school program supervised by Leslie Thompson and Bobbi Turner, both teachers at Northside.
The school day starts at 8 a.m. and ends at 12 p.m. The students are involved in six classes. Each day the students are presented with exciting new activities that are designed to keep them interested in learning and to help keep the skills each learned during the school year refreshed.
The students are also provided with breakfast and lunch, courtesy of the Seamless Summer school lunch program.
The program runs one more week, from June 20 to June 24.
