Grant Results: January-July, 2016
We were able to buy end of the year prizes for all of our students and host a party to celebrate the end of the school year. Over the summer, we are hosting various enrichment activities for students, including baking, playing at the park, and visiting the zoo.
End of the School Year Party
We hosted our annual end-of-the-school-year party in June for students and volunteers. The party included outdoor games, water balloons, photo frame signing, and prizes for students. As usual, it was a lot of fun. We are proud of our students and volunteers for finishing another successful school year!
Museum and Zoo Field Trip
Earlier this summer, we went on a field trip to the Palo Alto Museum and Zoo. Our students got to see some local animals, such as snakes, raccoons, turtles, peacocks, bats, bobcats, and many more at the zoo. Inside the museum, we learned about insects and bees and animals' natural habitats. The field trip was a fun way to get some sunshine and learn some science!
One of our new volunteers, Deborah, hosted a baking session with the kids. We baked breaded chicken and chocolate chip cookies. It was a true team effort. We took turns dipping the chicken in breadcrumbs and mixing the cookie dough. While we waited for the food to bake, we spent some time reading books. At the end of the evening, we got to enjoy our own food. The students got to take some cookies home to share their masterpieces with their families.
We really appreciate the support of TFish Fund! We also enjoyed meeting the board members and getting to share our experiences during the board meeting. This school year, we were able to replenish our supplies and support some enrichment activities. The TFish Fund has been wonderful to work with! We feel blessed to get to partner with TFish Fund and are very grateful for our continued partnership.
