SAC’s summertime activities end this week

Eva Williams, Thalia Frasier and Madison Fields-Herring use a styrofoam ball and coffee filters to create a hanging decoration for the 4th of July. The craft related to this Seifert School Age Center’s summer program theme, an “Old-fashioned Summer.”

 
It’s time to put away the lemonade stand and barbecue utensils as the Seifert School Age Center, or SAC, “Old-fashioned Summer” comes to a close today. While the theme brings to mind a laid-back, relaxing summer, children who participated in the program kept busy with a variety of recreational activities.

Children worked on arts and crafts projects relating to an “Old-fashioned Summer,” learning how to sew pillows and creating 4th of July decorations. One of their bigger projects included a lemonade stand, where students set up a stand, made their own lemonade and sold it to others.

One of their major accomplishments this summer was the arts and crafts fair. According to Angela Youngs-Liebel, SAC administrative assistant, the children were excited about the fair, selling their projects to each other and earning “decision dollars,” which are rewards for good behavior and decisions.

“The interaction was really fun,” Youngs-Liebel said. “Parents came for a nice turn-out.”

Aside from the arts and crafts, students were up and out of their seats participating in youth sports, yoga, swimming and having fun with hula-hoops. SAC partnered with the Boys and Girls Club for some of its activities, as well as the First Tee club of Tucson, an organization that provides youth golfing lessons.

Other partnerships involved the 4-H Club. Members came to the center to conduct a robotic Lego® activity. Children had the opportunity to design a Lego® creation on the computer and build it out.

Summertime at SAC means Family time as well. The program hosted two cook-outs for students and their Families for the 238th Army Birthday and Independence Day. Youngs-Liebel mentioned that adding to Independence Day festivities, the red, white and blue crafts the children made were hung in the School Age Services’ lobby for everyone to admire.

No summer experience is complete without a road trip. Students spent time in Tucson at Golf N’ Stuff and Pump It Up; a place that hosts parties with inflatable equipment children can play on. Local outings included trips to the movies and Peter Piper Pizza. Children also visited Horse’n Around Rescue Ranch and Foundation in Hereford, where they fed horses and learned about the equines’ rescue stories.

This year, the SAC summer program ran from May 25 through today and served first through fifth graders of the Fort Huachuca community.
