The Say Yes Summer Camp site at Canisius wrapped up six weeks of fun and learning just before the semester began.
The camp served 27 BPS students in PreK-3rd grade. Eleven of those students qualified for daily one-on-one Reading Ready tutoring through a grant from the Benedict Silverman Foundation. Three trained Canisius students provided 168 tutoring sessions for the students who all improved their literacy skills just in time for the new school year. Dr. Katie Pace Miles, author of Reading Ready and native Buffalonian, came for a visit to see the tutoring program in action!
Other highlights of the summer camp included weekly story time with Canisius Librarian, Matt Kochan, daily visits to the fish tank in the Office of Student Affairs, and play time with SEHS Dean, Dr. Nancy Wallace! The students had a summer they will never forget!

Please note that if you allow automatic grading of your exam, D2L will not automatically grade written responses. Those need to be graded manually. Inform your students that the grade they have immediately after completing the exam is not reflective of their overall grade.
