Siouxland students embark on a summer learning adventure with Beyond the Bell


It may be summer vacation, but class is still in session for some Siouxland boys and girls, as preschool through 6th graders go on an academic adventure.

With support from the Sioux City School District, Beyond the Bell designed a program to help minimize summer learning loss. For the first half of the day, students participate in activities that focus on core academic skills, like math and reading. Then after lunch, students get to explore Siouxland through daily field trips.

"It provides great academic support for students," said 1st grade teacher Stephanie White. "Not just struggling students, but all students; and, the afternoons are amazing. They have great field trips and stuff that the kids get to do that normally they wouldn't get to do."

The academic based program runs year-round, registration is now open for the after-class sessions for the upcoming school year.
