Westlake's library and schools team up to offer 'Summer Brain Games'
Westlake Porter Public Library and Westlake City Schools are partnering to present an interactive summer learning series for students entering grades 1 to 6. Called “Summer Brain Games,” the series will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from June 11 through August 22, excluding breaks for the week of July 4 and Science Week (August 4-10).
All sessions will be held at the library and prepared and run by staff from the Westlake City Schools with the help of volunteers. There will be a choice of four activity stations, including Reading, Math, Science and Social Studies. Activities and workshops will include content appropriate for each grade. Activities will change each week, but will be the same on the Tuesday and Thursday of the same week. Four workshops will also be offered: Reading Buddies, Readers’ Theater, Brown Bag Theater and Young Authors.
For more information on the Workshops please contact Nick Miller at MillerNi@wlake.org.
Summer Brain Games will be offered in addition to the library’s annual Summer Reading Program and Science Week. The Summer Reading program encourages children to keep up with their reading over the summer by offering incentives and a variety of programs for all ages. The Summer Reading program takes place from June 3 to July 31. Science Week consists of programs focusing on the STEM fields – Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. It is aimed at getting students ready to study these subjects in the new school year and communicating a sense of excitement about them. Science Week will be August 4-10.
