More than 200 students participated in the Westwood Regional School District's Summer Adventure Program this year, including more ESL students than ever before.
This year's 212 students included 63 in the ESL classes, according to Gina Cush, the program's director. There were also more students who took three or four classes than ever before, she said.
The Summer Adventure Program helps to prepare students for the new school year with a variety of extended school year, English as a second language, basic skills instruction and enrichment classes, according to Cush.
"It keeps our students' minds going, and their creativity and their thinking," Cush said.
The enrichment classes range from topics like "kindergarten readiness" and "word play for kids" to "computer carnival" and "movie making." No enrichment classes have ever been repeated in the program's history, Cush said.
