Shelby County Schools to offer summer enrichment classes

By GRAHAM BROOKS / Staff Writer

Just because summer is quickly approaching doesn’t mean students in Shelby County Schools can’t stay sharp on their mathematics, reading and other learning skills.

That’s because the Shelby County Schools Community Education Program is hosting a variety of specialty enrichment camps at different locations this summer throughout Shelby County.

The specialty enrichment camps are in addition to traditional full-day summer camps, which will be offered at Calera Intermediate, Chelsea Park Elementary, Forest Oaks Elementary, Helena Elementary, Helena Intermediate, Mt Laurel Elementary, Oak Mountain Elementary, Oak Mountain Intermediate and Oak Mountain Middle.

Fees vary dependent on the classes being offered.

The classes are open to students who are zoned for Shelby County Schools and may be limited to certain ages or grade spans.
