Last weekend at Pecan Grove in Renaissance Park, Early Learning Center students and their family enjoyed an amazing celebration of STEM education and literacy with activities, a fire truck, ambulance, K-9 dogs, a Teddy Bear March, Obstacle Courses, and drills from the BHS boys soccer team. The event was organized in part by The Chick-fil-A Leader Academy students at Baldwin High School.
"Family Day went great!" said Carrie Brown, Community Partnership and Family Services Manager for the Early Learning Center, "The children were able to participate in STEM, art, and literacy activities as well as have fun in the bouncy houses and the Elite Tumble Bus." There was something for everyone! I think the BHS Chick-Fil-A Leader Academy students had just as much fun as the ELC students! And every child left with a book!"
The Leader Academy Students have been busy implementing their spring Impact Project. The project began in April with a literacy field trip to The Brown-Stetson-Sanford House. Over 164 students from the Early Learning Center have visited and enjoyed different activities based around the story boxes donated to the Georgia’s Old Capital Heritage Center at The Depot by Dr. Barbara Rowe. The Literacy Project concluded with the Family Day held on Saturday, May 14th.
The Baldwin High School Chick-fil-A Leader Academy students have worked with the Early Learning Center Director Lori Smith, Pam Longino, members of the community, and different organizations to come together to make education fun!
