In honor of Mother's Day this Sunday, Ashley and Jaylen's story is an inspiring one about mothers and sons. These two share a special bond because they are both Club kids!
Ashley's mother helped build her local Boys & Girls Club and when Ashley had her son, Jaylen, she made sure he was a member, too. At the Club, Jaylen discovered his passion for basketball and found many male role models.
Ashley and Jaylen found their second family at the Club and connected with their community. Learn more about them: HERE
GEORGE KELLY SCHOOL
Third Graders enjoyed participating in Pioneer Day! Students had been busy learning about the Westward Movement, Tracy history, and one-room schoolhouses. Students experienced what it was like to go to school back in 1876 by: learning the 1876 Flag Salute, singing songs such as, “My Country ‘Tis of Thee,” “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad,” and “Oh, Susanna;” making yarn dolls, homemade butter, and playing some of the classic outdoor games such as jump rope, hopscotch, and cornhole. Students also practiced cursive writing, participated in a Spelling Bee, and learned Roman numerals.
POET CHRISTIAN SCHOOL
Open House was last Thursday night, March 31st. This is a picture from a 5th grade classroom. We had just over 75% attendance from parents for the event. It was great seeing parents on campus!
Thank you to Amazon for their donation of books to our students!
