WEST WARWICK â€” Learning for the students at Deering Middle School hasnâ€™t stopped just because itâ€™s summer time.
The initiative to maintain all thatâ€™s been learned during the school year goes on through the Kent County YMCAâ€™s collaboration with the United Way and Hasbro. â€śItâ€™s not just about academics,â€ť explained BLAST program and YMCA after school program Director Kristen Petrarca. â€śThis is about working as a team, about having organization and having an end goal and if you fail, learning how an idea can be successful and improved next time.â€ť
Congressman Jim Langevin, along with representatives from the United Way and Hasbro, took some time Tuesday morning to hear directly from the students what theyâ€™ve spent their time doing these last six weeks working on to showcase in their open house this Thursday from 9 to 11 a.m.
