Students Better Prepared to Return to School
When students return to school in two weeks, many of them — especially those from low income families — will be starting with achievement levels lower than where they were at the beginning of the summer break. That’s why Lafayette Urban Ministry has been so committed to our 5th Quarter Summer Learning Program. The 5th Quarter program offers low-income children the chance to keep pace academically with their peers, who may have more opportunities.
The program is in session each weekday throughout the summer months. This summer, there are 64 students enrolled. They begin their day with a nutritious snack and reading time. Then it is on to learning math, science, and social studies, taught through both classroom and online study. The students also regularly go on local recreation & learning excursions.
