Several Marion County Students Look Forward To Summer School
For many kids sitting in a classroom during June and July is a punishment worse than taking out the trash or cleaning their room.
But Marion County Schools are trying to change that. In addition to the usual classes for students to make-up work, nine middle and high schools will be offering classes designed for kids to have fun while learning. More than 100 classes such as science at a local springs, weight lifting, robotics, computers, and even learning a musical instrument will be offered. Kids can even get college credit for some classes...and the best part, its all for free. Some of the classes include free meals and transportation.
