Fayette County Starting Points FRC will hold (1) one-time PIP event and provide an after-school program on an ongoing basis:
HAMS4FAMS COMMUNITY CHRISTMAS EVENT – We will provide an array of activities and parent education to enhance parenting skills and emphasize the importance of family engagement. We will also provide children’s hands-on activities that promote child development. Children will receive a free age-appropriate, educational toy and the first 50 families to register will receive a free dinner ham. We will also provide free 8X10 family photos. Resource and referral agencies will be asked to attend as well. (WIC, DHHR, Birth to Three, etc.)
AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM – We will collaborate with Valley PreK8 School to provide a free after-school program for those children who are identified as LSES (low socioeconomic status.) Children will be provided with snack, project time (including science experiments, cooking activities, gardening projects, and much more), outdoor/indoor gross motor activities, journaling, reading enrichment, homework help and game time. We also hope to offer resources to the families of these children, addressing topics such as parent/family engagement, discipline, invitations to upcoming events, etc.
