Week of the Young Child 2017 a success
What a great week! Thank you to everyone who participated in Week of the Young Child this year. Our Faith Community Partners kicked off the week with messages about young children and families in their sermons. Despite a rainy start on Monday, we marched on to ring in the celebration with a Children’s Parade. The story boxes were great and many thanks to the Parker Middle School Band and Mayor Combs for participating in the indoor event. Party in the Park brought hundreds out to move, learn about literacy and try healthy foods through a SNAP-Ed demonstration. The week concluded with story times throughout the area and the Read to Rise Luncheon where keynote David Joyner of Joyner Media Strategies delivered a wonderful message about the rights of the child and community leaders and parents shared their stories about the impact of early education.
Many thanks to our volunteers, sponsors and staff who made this week a success. We look forward to next year and hope you will join us!
