Summer Program Recap - August 3

With almost four weeks down and one day to go, Windsor Strong Academy students spent Wednesday finalizing their future-ready final presentations for Thursday. The presentations are mock Instagram posts about their future selves that reflect qualities of civic readiness and how they make their future selves inclusive in their community. They will present in front of teachers, guardians, fellow students, and parents.

“Parents, guardians, and other relatives can see evidence of what these kids have gained in the past four weeks, and what they can do to improve their community,” said teacher Cole Battaglini.

The Windsor Strong Academy presentation will be at the Windsor Central High School library from 10am-11am Thursday.
Strongman Bill Clark continued his circuit of Windsor’s three elementary schools Wednesday, speaking to children at Weeks. Clark is a former world champion powerlifter who has set over 100 state, national, and world records in strength and power sports.

He shared lessons learned from his athletic career, including the importance of discipline, to encourage the students to pursue excellence.
Elementary campers continued their Olympic week activities. They used straws and popsicle sticks to build TV towers for cameras that broadcast the games.

“We talked about how engineers will build stadiums and ski jumps when the Olympics happen. So, we’re building towers,” said Windsor elementary science teacher Eileen Mulcahy-LaChance.  

Sports camps continued. Softball focused on outfield play, with drop step drills and reading the ball live of the bat. 4th-6th grade baseball players worked on throwing, catching, and hitting, while 7th-9th grade players worked on rundowns, tracking pop flies, and playing three-inning scrimmages.

Girls lacrosse players focused on shooting, dodging, and goaltending work, while the boys players focused on ground balls, dodging, and stick protection.
