🐛🦋“Students at Carolina Park Kaleidoscope recently had a hands on learning experience with the life cycle of a butterfly. They observed caterpillars turn into cocoons and then into butterflies. They also learned about the importance of butterflies within our environment as they were released into our school gardens.” - Carolina Park Elementary School Site Coordinator, Diane Kelly

“Ms. Wandia Richardson from our awesome North Charleston Rec staff brought in her bunny, Sunny, for the kiddos last Friday. She spent the week teaching the second grade students about rabbits, and how to take care of a pet rabbit. Her group even had to pass a test before she would bring him in! We let all of the students meet Sunny and they loved him. Even our smaller friends had a great time.” - Kat Norsworthy, Site Coordinator at North Charleston Creative Arts Elementary

🎉 Congratulations to our Junior Counselors at James Island Elementary School ! & Thanks to Dr. Pamela Pepper, Site Coordinator, for believing in her students and giving them a chance to help run the program.

“Learning doesn’t stop when the final bell of the school day rings. Every day in Charleston County School District , several thousand students make their way to the district’s after-school program called Kaleidoscope.

The program is designed to be an extension of the school day, where soft skills and leadership methods are taught through various activities. One activity students enjoy is earning the rank of Junior Counselor. The idea is being implemented in programs across the district.”


Murray LaSaine Kaleidoscope did a Toys For Tots drive with the school and collected over 90 toys! 🎁🧸🛍


“I was at St. Andrews School of Math and Science visiting the Kaleidoscope after school program today teaching the kiddos about Vietnam and Vietnamese food. The students loved the Bun Cha. Not picky eaters at all and so well behaved! Tons of awesome questions, and even a few suggestions on how to improve the recipe 😂😂 Thanks Expanded Learning Kaleidoscope, Charleston County School District, Bon Banh Mi and thanks to the students and staff. Special kudos to Mrs. Thompson the Site Coordinator for running an awesome program!” - Jason Sakran, Director

🦖Yesterday, was National STEM/STEAM Day. The students at North Charleston Elementary Kaleidoscope had some fun to celebrate! “The students and I talked about dinosaurs. We also talked about how people believe that dinosaurs are no longer on earth because volcanoes erupted near them, causing them to lose their homes. We colored a picture of 2 dinosaurs, the students were able to identify the dinos. The students then used dinosaur sand (baking soda) dinosaur soap (dish soap) and special dinosaur water (white vinegar) and they watched their own volcanoes erupt.” - Site Coordinator, Adriana Sousa Brooks
