2016 Spring Boot Camp

Spring camp 2016 FEEDBACK:

“Kareena did a very good job. She was very calm and understanding and patiently explained everything. She provided lots of nice tips. Thanks!”  
-Pawini Tiwari- Grade 3
 
 “Speech class is really good. Within a week, kids are able to speak on a topic with details. With Common Core, I prefer instead of just a packet, telling concepts would help them a lot.”
-Sree Nidhi Linga 
 
 “Shooting Stars will definitely help me during Common Core testing. Now since I have experience. I’m sure I’ll get a better score than last year. Shooting Stars made me more comfortable with the various concepts, and made me prepared for any other tests in the future. This will definitely help my grade and will help me in the future. All and all, shooting stars is a great organization, that will help many kids.”

The feedback given on the areas the kids need to work on was very specific and helpful. As a parent I’m pleased with the preparation for the testing they will take. Regarding the speech class, I enjoyed watching the final Speech Presentations.
