LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - School may be out, but that doesn't mean learning has to stop. A program in Lafayette is meant to keep kids on the right track during summer break.
Lafayette Urban Ministry (LUM) is holding its third annual "Fifth Quarter" program.
Statistics show some students fail to retain what they learned during the previous school year.
The program offers lessons in English, math and science in a summer camp setting.
Program Director Cindy Haley says she thinks the program helps kids.
"We're for parents that work every day and need a place to send their children. It's also for parents that are interested in their children's education and that their children don't fall behind," Haley said.
The Fifth Quarter Program starts Monday and there are still spots available.
It runs from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at LUM's downtown office at 420 N. Fourth St.
It's $60 per child, per week, and includes lunch and a snack.

The drop in temperatures brings the potential for health dangers, such as hypothermia and frost bite. The bitter temperatures can pose a threat for children, adults and pets.
As it stands Wednesday, there will be no FEMA aid for tornado survivors in Howard County.
