Last week the kids at our OSL After-School Program had an exciting day! Students from the Augustana College Education Association hosted a literacy carnival to bring a fun filled afternoon of learning to our elementary age students. Our After-School and Summer Programs show students that learning is fun with a variety of hands-on activities every day. This special experience from the Augustana students certainly made learning fun!
The literacy activities were each related to a specific book and included a photo booth, face painting, cow milking, tossing cats into hats, basketball, feeding a hungry caterpillar and much more fun! Each student received a book to take home, a pencil and a book mark.
As you can see from our photos, every OSL After-School student wore a smile as did the Augustana students. This is certainly a relationship that we hope continues to grow.
Our OSL After-School and Summer Program is our newest location and we serve students from Hawthorne and Jefferson Elementary thanks to a partnership with Our Savior’s Lutheran Church. For more information visit http://www.lsssd.org/children_services/childcare_and_education/ .
