Kids Kollege geared to inspire young minds

With week one well underway, Kids Kollege is giving the children of Halifax County something fun and exciting to do this summer. Classes offered by Parsons-Bruce Art Association provide enrichment activities in arts, crafts, drama and science.

This week the creative kids have gotten a jump-start into their classes and are excited about all the fun activities planned. 

Emma Shepperd, returning Kollege Kid, says her favorite part about Kids Kollege is meeting new friends and doing different activities.

“In the Spotlight,” one of the classes offered this week, allows kids to create an act and then perform it before the rest of their class. 

“Getting to act with other people who love acting as much as I do is the best part,” said Gracie Berneche, Kids Kollege volunteer. 

In the “CSI: Who Done It” class, investigators in grades 3, 4 and 5 use different tools such as their higher thinking skills to solve mysteries and collect information. One of their projects this week was to use the face-generating software to identify the suspect in their case. 

Other classes such as LEGO Robotics, Looney Toons, Book Buddies and More Fun, Games and Stories were offered this week. 

“I like Kids Kollege because I can do a variety of things that you don’t get to do everyday,” said Kaylen Griles, Kollege Kid. 

All of the Kids Kollege classes are staffed with teachers who are committed to contributing the most excellent summer experience for the children of Halifax County and surrounding areas. 

Over 70 children, ages 4-12, are enrolled in Kollege this week at the kids’ campus located at The Prizery. Classes will continue until July 22.
