While some students are relaxing, others in Door and Kewaunee Counties are still in classrooms. Some students are taking advantage of summer school classes to help keep their brains in classroom mode. Luxemburg-Casco offers summer school for students anywhere from Kindergarten to High School. The students can take classes to refresh their skills in math and reading or they can take more energetic classes like sports and athletics. Jenny Bandow, Dean of Students for the Luxemburg-Casco School District, says students may get more from summer school than people think.
The classes vary in times throughout the day starting as early as 8:30 and go into the early portion of the afternoon. Bandow also explained summer school helps kids see friends, practice their basic skills, and meet teachers they will see in the future. Luxemburg-Casco changes their class schedule up every summer to help keep classes fresh.
