Summer Portfolio Institute 2014

Dear Parents:

"You've Got the Write One" Summer Enrichment Camp will be held July 14-18 at the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Louisville, Belknap Campus and at the Frazier History Museum. The summer institute, lead by U of L professor Dr. Caroline Sheffield, will be an enrichment program for students entering grades 4-8, focusing on mathematics, writing, history and technology. Teams of practicing teachers and teacher education students will work with small groups of children to complete several instructional projects.

Campers meet daily from 9:00 am, until 2:45 pm at the College of Education and Human Development. This year we have a day at the Frazier History Museum. Campers will need to be dropped off and picked up at the downtown museum on the designated day. Besides participating in mathematics, writing, history and technology learning activities, campers will enjoy snacks and recreation with one another. We will provide a variety of instructional materials for our institute participants, as well as T-shirts and copies of their work. However, we ask that you provide PROMPT morning and afternoon transportation and a sack lunch. The fee for the institute is $85.00. A limited number of scholarships will be available to those in financial need. Scholarship applicants MUST provide proof of assistance such as income tax return, AFDC, food stamp card or supplemental security income card.

For additional information please email Desrie Nisbett at dmnisb01 @ (or call at 852-6593). Camp application and photograph release forms are available for download.
