It’s 2022 and we are back at LCS for another great school year! While back in school, some LCS students have reflected back on some of their favorite adventures and experiences over summer break. Here’s what Sofia, David shared, and Akin shared with us.
Sofia, a 2nd grader, shared that she went to Niagara Falls in New York with her family to celebrate her older sister, Sonja’s birthday. While in New York, she was able to try New York-style pizza for the first time, and ride on a boat agency that takes you right to the Falls called “Maid of the Mist.” She saw beautiful rainbows and wore ponchos with her family. Her last and final adventure over summer was climbing to the top of the mountain and being on top of the Falls! How cool is that? In the end, Sofia says she’d love to go again and suggests that everyone should go and enjoy the nice experience she had.
David Miller shared that he spent his time being productive, but also still having a lot of fun! He researched the college he was interested in and decided on some career paths that would align with his college major. David also tried something new called “DodgeBow” with his friends. He shares that the game was fun and gave him good exercise in the process. David shares that he discovered that archery is something that he really enjoys and as an amateur, he was very good at it. Lastly, David spent some of his time away from social media to reset, and also focus on himself more, which is always a great idea.
This summer, one of Akin Omotosho’s activities was spent in a summer program called Agdiscovery. If you don’t know, Agdiscovery is a program that gives students an opportunity to explore agricultural sciences and gain knowledge about careers in animal and plant disciplines, wildlife management, veterinary medicine, biotechnology, entomology, food safety, food production, agribusiness, forestry, and much more. During Akin’s time at Agdiscovery, he experienced hands-on learning workshops, behind-the-scenes tours, laboratory, and field exercises with a variety of character and team-building activities.
Akin learned about plants and animals, the importance of protecting America’s food supply from insects and disease, the role of regulation in genetically engineered organisms, and the challenge of managing and resolving wildlife conflicts. Akin also participated in a video game event and went on many field trips. The main point of the program was to learn about agriculture, so Akin and his group presented to parents and other attendees what they learned about the sustainability of crops. At the end of Akin’s program, he earned three whole college credits! How amazing is that? Akin strongly encourages the LCS high school student body to check it out!
All in all, this group of students had a fantastic summer according to what they shared with us. How about you? What did you do during the summer? Feel free to comment down below!
