"Every Monday-Wednesday the James Island Kaleidoscope kids attend Ms. Amy's Book Club. This semester we are reading "The Wild Robot". On Thursdays, we reflect what we read with different activities related to the book. This week the children were asked to draw the main character of "The Wild Robot". And boy, these kids did not disappoint! Check out a few of these drawings." - Amy Barrows, James Island Site Coordinator

FUN FRIDAY!! "Today we tried an Oculus - VR (Virtual Reality) system at Belle Hall for stations and the kids absolutely loved it! Everyday at Belle Hall we do stations for around an hour and try to constantly switch them up to give the kids new interesting things to do. Some stations are group games, art crafts, BINGO, and more!" - Dylan Deckard, Belle Hall Asst. Site Coordinator

"Today we celebrated National Kid Inventors Day! We learned that Benjamin Franklin invented the first swim flippers when he was only 12 years old. And that the popsicle, earmuffs, and trampoline were all invented by kids! Our kiddos used a variety of materials to create their own inventions. Some of the inventions included a wheeling cane, portable water filter, travel toilet paper, and a portable pantry!" - Robin Fay, Murray LaSaine Site Coordinator

"Ladson Elementary is continuing to keep the ball rolling with literacy in Kaleidoscope. Following a weekly theme, the students created superhero penguins and comic books with their superpowers and stories. The students then shared their comics with Ms. Mari Alice, Mr. Kendall, and other adults in the building. The students not only enjoyed being creative authors but also were able to practice reading and writing." - Mari Alice Jones, Ladson Site Coordinator

"On Tuesday evening, we hosted a holiday enrichment event for our students and their parents. Pluff Mud Pottery was the enrichment provider who supplied the materials and supervised our group during the event. They took the painted ornaments to their studio to heat in their kiln. They will bring the finished ornaments with each student name on the back next Wednesday. The ornament is a holiday gift for our students as a reminder of our continued engagement with them." - Deborah Graham, CPA Site Coordinator

"With literacy having a big push in CCSD we are doing our part at Belle Hall Kaleidoscope! Besides reading everyday for 15-20 minutes we have also started a pen pal program! I reached out to an after-school program in the suburbs of Denver, Colorado to partner with (Cottonwood Creek Elementary School). Once or twice a month our 4th and 5th graders will be writing letters back and forth with their pen pals in Colorado! We received our first letters last week and our kids at Belle Hall have been so excited to write this week! We will be mailing them out early next week!" - Dylan Deckard, Belle Hall Assistant Site Coordinator

West Region Program Officer Shelia Grier, and Nurse Liaison Melissa Johnson from CCSD's Expanded Learning Kaleidoscope participated in The Citadel Leadership Day. They sat in a debriefing over lunch with the freshmen who returned from their Leadership Day activities. The freshmen visited CCSD elementary schools and helped the children write letters to a hero in their life. The elementary students loved having the time and attention of the freshmen Citadel students, and they were very impressed by their uniforms! The freshman Citadel students stated that they really enjoyed interacting and making a difference in their day by being there to help and play with them.

"One of our goals at Belle Hall Kaleidoscope is to partner with local organizations in the community so the children can learn about where they’re from! We partnered with the Edisto Island Serpentarium yesterday and they came to Belle Hall to give us a presentation on the animals at their facility. This includes snakes, turtles, lizards and alligators! They brought a tortoise and 4 different types of snakes. The kids were allowed to pet the snakes and the tortoise. And our 5th graders were even allowed to hold the snakes! This is our second guest speaker of the year and we can’t wait for more!!" - Dylan Deckard, Belle Hall Assistant Site Coordinator

Our very own Harold Sanders, 21st CCLC Program Officer, was asked to introduce as the keynote speaker for the first day fellowship program. Site Coordinators from 21st CCLC and the Central region were in attendance.

The Power UP! fellowship program, made possible through the South Carolina Department of Education. Over the course of two days, SCALE Fellows and members of their program teams gathered in Columbia, SC, to be inspired and energized about afterschool and expanding learning. They heard from leading experts, had time to network with other educators from across the state, and got the opportunity to bond with fellow team members.

Attendees chose from sessions that covered topics such as hosting effective meetings, identifying community partners, strengthening teams and advancing the afterschool profession, family engagement, and more.
