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.
During the month of March, Great Kids welcomed seven community leaders to share their knowledge about leadership. Our students enjoyed meeting these inspirational leaders, and learned valuable leadership principles. On Day Two we welcomed many community leaders including Mayor Ed Kelley, Chamber of Commerce Leader Linda Camp, Police Captain Jesse Godfrey and Sergeant Tom Elkins, Commander Dave King, FUMC Pastor Scott Smith and Mr. Carl Persis.
During the month of March, Great Kids welcomed ERAU Coach Steve Ridder and ERAU basketball team players #30, Brian Johnson and #40, Luka Majstorovic to our campus. Coach Ridder shared valuable leadership principles to follow: love, enthusiasm, humility, integrity, positive attitudes, determination, encouraging others, and showing that we are worthy to be trusted. The children were thrilled with their souvenir programs autographed by Brian and Luka, and even more excited about ERAU’s donation of basketballs!
