Different children have different needs. Some need academic help; some need a stable home and food on the table, or someone who will listen and help guide the way. Others may just need a pair of eyeglasses.
Elementary College Tours
Students were given a tour of the campus and each elementary school was able to visit the different college buildings they were assigned to. We were assigned to the School of Science where our students learned about different majors they can pursue in the future. The college of Science also had hands on activities to make things more interesting for the students.
Annual College Luncheon
Pictures from the Annual College Luncheon held at Ball HS in January. Alumni from various Colleges participate in this event. Students are able to meet with the college representatives one on one and are even able to submit applications for acceptance to the college of their choice.
National Fire Prevention Week
In observance of national Fire Prevention Week in October, the Galveston Fire Department presented a fire safety program for all 1st Grade students at Parker Elementary School. Activities included a fireman putting on equipment one piece at a time and an explanation of how each is used, a tour of a fire truck, and a chance to meet Fire Pup. In addition, 110 coloring books with fire safety rules were distributed to each students in advance of the visit. Communities in Schools and Trish Anderson of the Fire Dept. provided an event that was meaningful and a fun filled treat to students on campus as they learned not to burn.
