Wrapping Up at Beeman

It is hard to believe that the school year is coming to an end... Where did the time go?! The experiences that the Expanded Learning Program was able to bring to Beeman this year has been truly astounding. We had eleven different workshops that ranged from cultural studies of Africa and Spanish speaking countries, to strategy games, outdoor survival skills and more.

 Additionally we were able to launch Beeman's first year of the Girls on the Run program. This helped to entice many new students to the ELP program and we had a full team of 18 girls, amazing! Even more amazing was the amount of students that we had participate, over half of our schools students population took part in ELP this year, what an incredible feat!

This week marked our last meeting for ELP for the 2016-2017 school year. Girls on the Run will continue with one last practice next week and a  5K at the Essex fair grounds on Saturday, June 3rd, come cheer us on if you can :)

It has been truly rewarding to watch the growth, curiosity, memories and bonds that have grown as a result of these amazing after school opportunities. Thank you to everyone who took part by either teaching, volunteering, participating, donating or organizing snacks. I am very grateful for all of the support I received and enthusiasm I saw. 

Come spend time with us this summer for more of all the wonderful things that ELP has to offer!
