Gra­sonville El­e­men­tary hosts Break­fast with Santa

Record Observer - - School -

GRA­SONVILLE — Gra­sonville El­e­men­tary School is a school­wide Ti­tle I pro­gram for the 2016-2017 school year. It pro­vides a va­ri­ety of events through­out the year to its fam­i­lies. One of Ti­tle I’s goals is to bridge the gap between home and school.

Gra­sonville El­e­men­tary School’s Ti­tle I Pro­gram hosted “Break­fast with Santa” on Dec. 7. Dur­ing the break­fast, fam­i­lies re­laxed while they ate with their stu­dents. The break­fast was pro­vided by Sodexo and the Gra­sonville El­e­men­tary School kitchen staff.

Dur­ing each event par­ents are of­fered dif­fer­ent work­shops that share strate­gies, tips and aca­demic data. Par­ents are also shown how they can work with their stu­dents at home and in­crease their aca­demic suc­cess. Gra­sonville El­e­men­tary School be­lieves that pro­vid­ing seam­less ser­vices to their stu­dents will fur­ther the stu­dent’s abil­ity to ex­cel and pro­vide them with the abil­ity to reach their full potential.

The “Break­fast with Santa” event was a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity for the par­ents to see what types of break­fast foods are of­fered to their stu­dents on a daily ba­sis. The in­struc­tional staff pro­vided a va­ri­ety of math games for the stu­dents and their par­ents to en­gage in dur­ing their break­fast. The games fo­cused on the spe­cific math skills each grade level has been work­ing on this year.

This was an­other op­por­tu­nity for par­ents to work with their stu­dents while hav­ing fun. The stu­dents also had an op­por­tu­nity to visit an “Es­ti­ma­tion Sta­tion,” where they es­ti­mated the num­ber of items in a va­ri­ety of fes­tive con­tain­ers. Ev­ery­one also had the op­por­tu­nity to visit with Santa and snap a few pictures. At 9 a.m. the stu­dents headed off to heir classes and the par­ents were pro­vided with math fo­cused work­shops aught by the Gra­sonville Ele­men­tar y School teach­ers.
