Rock Island School Students Stay Engaged With Fun Fall Programs

More than 100 students participated in Spring Forward’s Fall Intersession Camps! The camps were offered to any student in the district in grades 1st through 6th at no cost to them. During the first week of Fall Intersession (Oct. 3-Oct.7), students were able to choose between four fun, hands-on camps. They could learn art with the Figge Art Museum, science and nature with the Putnam Museum and Nahant Marsh Education Center, or Basketball and Swimming with Rock Island Parks & Recreation. This was a great opportunity for students to still be engaged over fall break and have fun doing so!  Read More
