We hear such things from our interns as - "this program has turned my life around"-- often they ask if they can return for a second semester. We have had some interns drive for an hour to come and serve our kids. Of course, that is a win-win for all of us.
We began our Spring Semester on Jan. 24 with 20 children ages K-5th grade and this week welcomed 26. 15 interns have asked to work with us this semester and are bringing lots of enthusiasm to the program.
The students all check in with Mr. John and Mr. Keith helps to keep them safe.
The students are divided up into age- appropriate teams this semester and are enjoying the competitve spirit of excelling as a group. Every three weeks they will get to move to a new activity to experience all the labs.
This team of 4th graders are being introduced to their new interns during our first night.
The kids are getting to cook with Mr. Randy and very quickly they learn of his big heart!
Mrs. Janet always has the most thought out plans and this has been our biggest team yet -- 12 K-2nd graders painting!!! Fall Intern Laurel has returned this semester and brought her sister Heather to help.
We have our most active 3rd grade boys starting in sewing . . . hmmmm kind of scary when they race their machines!
Leah McGlothlin is my helper and helps to hold it all together when it becomes like "Crazytown" in there.
Josh McGlothlin who is a cabinet-maker has devised a plan
for the students to make themselves desks. -- Totally donating all he supplies and prepping the desk.
