  • MDOC Enrichment Camp Stems the Summer Slide

    Studies have shown that academic regression during the summer can vary depending on grade level, subject, and family income. Lower-income students generally lose about two months of reading achievement during summer break. These findings are part of the reason for our focus on literacy during our Summer Camp. We examined the data for the reading levels of the students enrolled in the Margaret Donnelly O’Connor Education Center after-school program and camp. Students who regularly attend our after-school program and summer camp on average saw measurable gains in reading level while the students who didn’t regularly participate in our after-school program and/or experience our summer camp saw a decrease in reading level over the summer.

  • Crafting Kids Celebrate Their Parents

    Ethel Lawrence Homes resident Darcy Daniels is an avid crafter during her free time, often spending hours in her room dedicated to crafting creating fun new projects. Darcy reached out to the Education Center to offer her help and expertise in creating beautifully designed Mother’s and Father’s Day cards. “I think crafting is a healthy and productive way to deal with stress,” said Darcy. “I enjoy teaching the children something new, and hopefully besides the cards themselves, they will take away from the experience that they can create their own crafts on their own.”
