Arlene Banks, a teacher at Howard School on the Ruston campus of Louisiana Methodist Children’s Home, implemented a voluntary Summer Enrichment program. Mrs. Banks’ students were offered the opportunity to take part in the program from June 1-30 from 8:00-12:00 each week day.

Many students chose to take part in the program’s objective to improve math and reading skills for each participant. The youth enjoyed many educational, fun, hands-on activities.

The program culminated in a celebration of the youth’s many accomplishments. Each participant was given the opportunity to read some of their work to a group of their peers and staff. Lunch and snacks were served after the youth did their readings.
