Watch: Parent Guide to Summer Reading Camp 2024

Summer Reading Camp (available for 2nd & 3rd grade students) (invite only) 

In accordance with the law, every school district in South Carolina is required to identify third-grade students who are not proficient in reading on their grade level. These students must be given the chance to attend a summer reading camp. The summer reading camps will be led by highly qualified teachers who have experience in working with struggling readers. Students will have the opportunity to receive individual and small group instruction to improve their reading, writing, listening, and researching skills. Each school will identify and inform the students who have been selected for this program. Not accepting the invitation may lead to the student being held back in the third grade.

HJSHS Culinary Institute of the South Field Trip

Food and Nutrition 2 students from Hardeeville Junior and Senior High School visited the Culinary Institute of the South, where they met with Chef Damon Dickerson, who gave them a guided tour of the facilities. 

Students had the opportunity to view various high-tech food preparation areas and students at work and engage in real-world activities facilitated by the institution which had guests being served in their café and bistro.

They also had the pleasure of meeting a student presently attending the Institute who was a student in Jasper County two years ago. 

Chef Dickerson provided valuable information to the students about the different job opportunities that exist in the Food and Hospitality industry. He also shared the average annual salary for each occupation, and emphasized on the places where students can apply for jobs after completing their course of study.

Students listened attentively and answered questions promptly when asked. The Technical College of the Lowcountry provides students with a range of programs that can be pursued on a full-time or part-time basis after completing high school. Additionally, students can choose between day or evening classes and also participate in internships. These internships offer hands-on training and real-world experiences, which can be valuable for their future endeavors.
