ASPIRE provides fun learning experience for students and teachers

Monday, August 9th marked the end of another great summer in the ASPIRE program! ASPIRE (Academic Summer Program Including Recreation and Education) is designed to help students continue to grow as learners throughout the summer, filling the gap between school years. Lessons are made fun through educational games, hands-on learning experiences and field trips. 

During the summer, students in ASPIRE had the opportunity to study dinosaurs, raise frogs, explore inukshuks at Assiniboine Park Zoo and solve math problems with a superhero twist! ASPIRE Fest then offered all of the different classes an energetic multi-site activity day, bringing students and teachers from every school together for outdoor fun and games -- including a visit from Spiderman! 

ASPIRE also provides a hands-on learning experience for teacher candidates who work as classroom instructors and coordinators throughout the program. Education students from the University of Winnipeg and University of Manitoba facilitated and provided their teaching skills in every class. For these young teachers, ASPIRE provides a valuable work opportunity. They develop fun and creative lesson plans and engage students with interactive activities, all while giving kids a new social experience by connecting them with other students throughout the Division.

We thank all of our ASPIRE teachers and staff for helping to make this another fantastic year, and we look forward to seeing students again next summer!

If you'd like to learn more about ASPIRE and how you can get involved, please contact Melissa Foidart at melissa.foidart@lrsd.net.
