Minneapolis Public Schools combine reading, writing, dance, poetry and technology into this year’s summer school curriculum at Ramsey International Fine Arts Center.

Sixth, seventh and eighth-grade students from across the district are working the Children’s Theater Company through Neighborhood Bridges, a literacy-based  theater program. Neighborhood Bridges uses theater games, story-telling,  improvisation and creative writing activities to improve reading, writing and critical thinking skills, while fostering the development of public speaking skills.

Dramatic presentations of fairy tales and the play, “Into the Woods,” and other performances  introduce students to Hip-Hop dance and a variety of poetry styles including cinquain, haiku, limerick and iambic pentameter. A media presentation compiling video of the projects they complete as is planned a final technology assignment.

Camp MPS begins July 7 and ends July 30. Campus days are from 8:45 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Breakfast and lunch are included free of charge and transportation is provided for students that qualify.
