On Monday, September 26th, Great Kids welcomed Anthony Wild and Don Quellette from Kids Rock the Nation. Their program combined Christian Education with music, and featured powerful lessons about how music can impact our lives. Mr. Wild's lesson inspired us to continue developing leadership skills of being proactive and setting goals. Our students learned that perseverance and having a passion for developing our talent leads to success in reaching your dreams. Thank you for giving us a new perspective in discovering the joy and healing powers of music!
On September 16th, our girls cheered at the Seabreeze High Schol football game with their cheerleader "sisters" under Municipal Stadium's Friday Night Lights. Throughout the week, Great Kids' girls attended cheerleading practice at Seabreeze High to prepare for their cheerleading debut. Thank you to Principal Rawlings and Coach Amy Pantages for sharing their talented cheerleaders with us, and for hosting the tailgating celebration. Our girls love their new Seabreeze Cheerleader t-shirts, and will forever remember this special evening of fun (we especially loved the stunts)! The staff of Great Kids and FUMC will reminisce with our girls as familiar chants of We Say Seabreeze and Go, Baby, Go echo through our hallways during the next few months.
Our students loved ERAU's basketball camp this summer! The camp offered a great learning experience for 125 students of various age groups, elementary through high school. Children improved their basketball skills and also learned valuable lifeskills such as having a positive attitude, strong work ethic, and a commitment to learning. It was a fun week of camp, and we are grateful for Coach Ridder and his amazing coaching staff! Thank you, ERAU and Coach Ridder for providing Great Kids with an awesome summer camp experience!
Our end-of- the-year celebration included an afternoon of skating at Skate and Shake. The children skated to their favorite songs, and Ms. Cheryl provided plenty of entertaining games throughout the skate session. Thank you, Cheryl Gray, for hosting a wonderful event! We can’t wait to come back next year!
Great Kids hosted a special Family Night on May 2nd to celebrate our children's wonderful achievements! Family members were super proud as their child taught about leadership habits and demonstrated their favorite interactive learning programs on the iPad.
