Summer S.A.I.L. started its fourth summer on June 5 at three Georgetown County Schools. The 6 week academic rich program works with almost 90 children from 8-12 Monday through Friday. The curriculum, written by our local teachers, is shared with all non-profit and school summer programs working with K-3 graders. This Summer's theme is Weather or Not and teaches Science and Inquiry Learning (S.A.I.L)! First day photos show how excited the kids are to be in school this summer! Our goal: Stop the summer slide and ensure every child can read on level by 3rd grade!
