Students in New Franklin, MO. use technology to complete a research project on Wednesday, September 19. The eMINTS approach stresses learning with technology, so students have access to laptops and iPads.
A program that provides free daily meals to children from low-income families is under way this week in Columbia. The Lunch in the Park program fills a need that arises when the school year ends. Many children who receive free and reduced-price meals during the school year may not have access to nutritious meals during the summer.
The program, a partnership between the Health Department and the Volunteer Action Center, can serve more than 100 kids each day. Lunch in the Park also provides entertainment and educational activities.
