The Community Connections day was
mixed with activities in the classroom
and in the community.
Community Connections meets every day for four weeks in the summer from
8:00 AM to 12:30 PM. A third of the time is spent in the classroom and the remainder
is spent doing a variety of activities outside of the classroom or in the community.
The 2001 edition of Community Connections was expanded to five weeks, with
a daily 9:00-1:30 schedule. A culinary arts piece was added and included a
daily sit-down meal and segue into Diversity Study Circles, facilitated through
the Benton County Community Alliance for Diversity.
