Summer fun continued for more than 250 Bethpage students who enrolled in the Bethpage Union Free School District’s Golden Eagles Summer Academy. This summer marked the second year of the program and the first year with high school students. It was held at Central Boulevard Elementary School and ran from Aug. 1-12. All Bethpage students entering grades K-12 were invited to join the 2022 summer academy for free and partake in interactive learning and enrichment opportunities.
At the elementary level, students participated in fun literacy, math, music and fitness activities each day. As a result, the incoming first through fifth graders enhanced their knowledge as they prepared to enter the new school year. Middle and high school students were also invited to enroll in the Golden Eagles Summer Academy and pick from a variety of course options that best fit their interests. Each course ran for a week, so secondary students could select two. Courses consisted of band, career camp, computer programming and animation, creative writing, engineering, forensics, hands-on science, history of NY, knitting craft fun, shark tank, stock market 101, tackling the college essay and resume, theater camp and yoga.
The 2022 Golden Eagles Summer Academy was facilitated by program advisers Allison Robb and Erica Indenbaum, who helped ensure that the two-weeks ran safely and smoothly for all the students and staff involved.
“We’re so excited the Golden Eagles Academy could provide a variety of activities for our students again this summer,” said Robb. “Children were given access to unique and meaningful opportunities while building relationships with their peers and Bethpage staff members.”
