ESSER III Funds in Action: My Camp
ESSER III funds are already at work in Grand Prairie ISD! They are being used right now to provide a summer program called My Camp, which is being held at five of our elementary campuses:
- Whitt Fine Arts Academy
- Daniels Academy of Science and Math
- Seguin Elementary
- Bowie Fine Arts Academy
- Garcia Elementary
My Camp is an in-person summer camp that provides enrichment and academic support for elementary students. It is a full-day program that focuses on reading and math while providing engaging experiences in fine arts, technology, and STEAM. Teachers also provide valuable SEL lessons on themes such as kindness, confidence, and courage, to name just a few.
ESSER III makes it possible for Grand Prairie ISD to offer this program at NO COST to parents, and this program is just the beginning! More innovative support programs are on the way, and we’ll be sure to keep you informed about them.
