Delta News and Information
Delta/Summit Raise Racing Pigeons

Image

This year Delta/Summit is developing a racing pigeon program, where students will take part in the day to day operations of breeding, raising and racing pigeons. We believe that programs like this play an important role in developing the whole child. We know that this program will help keep our students off the streets and out of trouble. The pigeon program is by far the most popular after school program this semester.

Our pigeon program will provide our students the opportunity to expand on their higher level thinking skills, while providing valuable hands on experiences that involve racing pigeons. This program will be goal-oriented and will build on the unique bond between animals and humans. While participating in the project students will enhance their understanding of mathematics, U.S. history, technology, geography, and science. One of the goals of this program is to provide excitement and gratification while improving on life skills and academic skills.

During the program students will help construct the inside of the loft. They will also raise young pigeons from an egg and eventually race their very own pigeon. All the feeding and medications that are administered to the pigeons will be done by the students.
