R-4 Board approves 2012 summer school

Thursday, May 3, 2012

The Cassville R-4 School Board approved the 2012 summer school application at its regularly scheduled meeting on April 12.

This year's summer school program will be held May 24 through June 19. The regular school year concludes on May 17, and students will be dismissed early on May 16 and May 17.

According to Jill LeCompte, director of instructional services, the summer school program will be open to preschool through eighth grade students. Credit recovery classes will also be offered for high school students.

"The theme for this year's program is Inventor's Workshop," said LeCompte. "We will have rotational days with different teachers in charge of different units. The students will rotate throughout the day."

Remedial reading and other remedial instruction classes will also be available to students who take part in the summer school program.

The district will offer three bus routes. Bus stops will be made at the same locations in Golden, Butterfield and Jenkins that were used for the 2011 summer school program.

Free breakfast and lunch will be offered to all students.

Parents interested in learning more about the summer school program can call the primary school office at 847-2445, the intermediate school office at 847-4010 or the middle school office at 847-3136.
