Movin’ and groovin’ on spring break

Not everyone took it easy during spring break.

Lincoln’s Community Learning Centers hosted a free camp - called "Movin’ & Groovin" - at Goodrich Middle School this week that had students doing exactly that - movin’ and groovin.’

About 30 students, ranging from fourth to eighth grade, attended the camp 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday and until 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, when the students ate dinner with their families and staged a performance.

The camp featured activities in music, rhythm, creative movement and performing arts. Students moved in groups between four stations: improv, lip sync, movin’ and groovin,’ and step. Breakfast and lunch were provided, as was transportation from students’ home schools.

There are 26 Community Learning Centers - or CLCs - located at 19 elementary schools, six middle schools and one high school. They offer a variety of afterschool programming and resources through partnerships with 12 lead agencies and hundreds of community partners. The Lincoln Community Foundation, the City of Lincoln and Lincoln Public Schools share oversight of the CLCs.
