MILLSAP MATTERS: MAP camps for students

By SHARRON HUDSON

MILLSAP – As we begin the hot days of summer, even though the school year is over there is still much activity going on through the Millsap Afterschool Program. Under the leadership of Director Summer Edwards there are a number of camps taking place for students.

The first such event was a recent robotics camp courtesy of the Agricultural Life Extension Agency. The students were fostered to build a number of different kinds of robots from everyday items and use battery packs to make them work. This enriched the kids science and technology skills.

There is the classroom portion of Drivers Ed offered to students aged 15 years and up, plus a Cheer and Dance Camp for K-6th grade Millsap ISD girls. The middle school and high school cheerleaders mentor the campers, and some of the main goals are to teach about leadership and teamwork. Many wonderful activities for the youngsters this summer.

Director Edwards also wants parents of Millsap ISD upcoming pre-K and kindergartners to know that a Prep Camp will be held the last two weeks of July to help get these students ready for the classroom structure. The pre-K camp is July 15-18 and the kindergarten camp is July 22-25. The child must be enrolled in the district to attend. For questions or to sign your child up call 940-682-3143.

Those who participate in the gospel singing at Holders Chapel, Cool and Lambert Switch Chapel, north side of U.S. Highway 180 about 10 miles east of Cool, invite everyone to join them for any or all of these events. These events have been taking place on a regular basis for years and people travel from great distances across the state to participate or just to sit and enjoy the music. Holders Chapel hosts the first Saturday of each month, 6-8 p.m. Lambert Switch hosts the third and fourth Saturday of each month, 6-8 p.m. and the second Sunday of each month, 2-4 p.m.
