Holly Hill School K-8 was pleased to have the support of Food Brings Hope this year! Holly Hill School selected 40 students to participate in our Kids Zone and Teen Zone program. Our participants for the school year of 2015-2016 consisted of students in grades 4-7. The students were selected based on their previous participation and teacher recommendation.
With the support of Food Brings Hope, we were able to provide homework help and enrichment activities; while building social skills to improve relationships among our students, parents, and teachers. Throughout the year, students were engaged in activities including arts and crafts; health and wellness; and etiquette sessions to help provide a variety of new learning experiences. Students were provided the opportunity and encouraged to implement their new learning experiences in their daily routines.
Thanks to our sponsor, Mrs. Newmon, our students received nutritious meals and were introduced to a new fruit or vegetable with each dining experience at our school. The Holly Hill School sponsors, Mrs. Gadson and Mrs. Newmon, would like to express gratitude to Mrs. Fletcher, a retired Holly Hill teacher. She provided our students etiquette sessions to help build communication skills, learn good manners, and show respect for others and themselves.
By way of Food Brings Hope, our enrichment activities allowed our students to learn how to build new and improved relationships with their peers. During weekly meetings, our students learned how to work in pairs or groups to reach a common goal. For example, our students learned the importance of working together during homework help sessions. In addition, students improved their social skills through character development lessons. These lessons helped to assist our students with conflict resolution skills.
