The Central Islip Elementary School Summer Enrichment Program has returned for 2021. Program Administrator, Ms. Tracy Rentz-McLeod, Math Coordinator Ms. Allison Philips, and Literacy Coordinator Ms. Kathy Gallagher explained that this year's theme is a camp-out, where 'campers' are placed in groups that are inspired by camping. Adventurers, backpackers, dragonflies, dream catchers, explorers, and hikers are just some of the many groups that eagerly enter the Francis J. O'Neill Elementary School each morning. As in previous years, student campers mix learning with FUN! Students are engaged and motivated, using district-provided Chromebooks to utilize Savvas Summer Impact and Success Maker. These programs have been designed to reinforce and introduce learning in math and literacy skills. 

Campers also have the opportunity to be involved with Cornell Cooperative for nutrition and cooking experiences, as well as participate in a host of STEAM, social-emotional learning, poetry, origami and physical education activities.

The final day of the camp will include a culmination of activities wherein students and their families will enjoy an old-fashioned backyard camp-out experience. The day's itinerary will include making solar ovens and bug catchers, playing games, making crafts, hearing stories read aloud and visits from Kerboom Kidz and the ice cream truck. 

In addition to taking home wonderful memories, upon conclusion of the program, students will be able to remain enrolled in at-home virtual participation in the Savvas Success Maker, with the goal of maintaining their summer growth. 

School Board President Norman A. Wagner, and Superintendent of Schools Sharon A. Dungee, lauded Central Islip School District's Elementary School Summer Enrichment Program, citing the meritorious, educational and fun-filled activities under the tutelage of inspiring teachers, that help keep students academically engaged during summer months.
