‘Summer Bridge’ Helps Students Transition

Blowing bubbles. Making ice cream. Digging for fossils. Using a banana as a battery to power an LED light.

Warren City Schools students have been involved in all of these activities and more as part of the district’s Summer Bridge Learning Opportunity.

These might not seem like routine class assignments. But Summer Bridge is giving students fun and creative hands-on activities designed to help them learn.

In any of the classrooms inside Warren’s five school buildings, students are reading, writing, using manipulatives, and engaging in conversations centered around applying what they are learning.

These activities and more are part of Warren City Schools’ efforts to provide students with learning opportunities as they transition from one grade to the next. Reading and writing have been incorporated into every lesson.

“The goal of the program is not only to reflect on learning of this past year but also to propel students into what comes next so they are better prepared this coming school year,” explained Suzette Jackson, assistant curriculum director, Warren City Schools grades 6-12.

The Summer Bridge program kicked off June 7 at Warren’s four PK-8 schools and Warren G. Harding High School – running Mondays through Thursdays – and continues through June 25 for the high school and June 29 for the PK-8 schools.

The program provides students with opportunities to participate in engaging lessons that promote critical thinking while collaborating with their peers, explained Jackson. Warren staff developed lessons that include hands-on activities aligned to Ohio’s Learning Standards in every core content for every grade level.
