The 2023 Carver Center Summer Literacy Camp has come to a close. Students honed their reading and math skills with certified teachers Donna Bunn and Sara Smith, from Bunnell Elementary School.
The Flagler County Education Foundation, Carver Center and Flagler Schools collaborated with community sponsors Chelsea Barney Herbert, of 4C’s Trucking and Excavation, and Renae and John Rogers, of John’s Towing, to make the camp possible.
"This collaboration could not have happened without our sponsors, who want the best for the students in the Carver Gym community through educational programming," Maryiotti Johnson, the foundation's assistant director of finance and operations, said in a press release.
Flagler Schools' Tammy Yorke, Rashawnda Lloyd-Miller and Ryan Deising ensured that facilitating teachers had the resources needed for success. Bonita Robinson and Stacey Smith of the Carver Center coordinated field trips and guest speakers.
Flagler County Fire Marshal Jerry Smith visited before the Fourth of July to speak about fireworks safety.
Judy Jean, University of Florida/IFAS Extension Flagler County horticulture agent, shared gardening techniques in the neighboring elevated garden beds.
