ABF Inaugural Huntsville Summer BASIC

From our friends at BASIC:

Under the umbrella of Summer Adventures in Learning (SAIL) North, the Huntsville School System has embarked on the BASIC adventure.  On May 29th, fifty rising 3rd, 4th and 5th graders began enjoying summer learning by rotating from sport-skill stations to academic stations related to sports. Besides reading related to sports and math related to sports, the students will receive daily STEAM instruction that will broaden their educational horizons.

Day one centered on the definition and the interiorization of tenacity. Woven into the instruction and the competition, the new students learned a BASIC foundation block—Never Give Up! Staffed by Huntsville system teachers who have sacrificed their summer to make summer fun for their students. Huntsville invites its sponsors and partners to stop in and review student progress.
