A Woonsocket Student Gets a Jump Start at Feehan's Summer Academy
Crystal Gladu of Woonsocket is one of over a hundred incoming freshman to participate in Bishop Feehan's Summer Academic Academy.
Bishop Feehan High School recently held its annual two-week long Summer Academic Academy for incoming freshmen.
Over a hundred students chose to participate and enjoyed many opportunities for “learning the ropes” of a new campus including participating in group activities to enhance social interaction, a review of math and English skills, and “survival” skills like how to take notes, how to use the library, how to stay motivated, and how to avoid discipline problems. Among those to take part was Crystal Gladu of Woonsocket.
“The Summer Academic Academy has been a great success each year. Whether the kids realize it or not, it gives them the confidence to start the year off on the right foot and helps to eliminate the first-day-of-school jitters,” commented Ann Perry, Vice President of Academic Affairs.
