Waxhaw Parent Child Day a Success!
We had a great time at the FIRST P/C day at Waxhaw Elementary School! There were 6 adults and 10 children and one future Kid Corps member under one year of age! Jorge and Rick of the National Guard were present to do experiental learning with the ping pong ball game, team skiing and the molten lava challenged. We broke for snacks and drinks and finished up the day with crafts. Most participants chose to paint canvas bags. Not only did we have fun, but we bonded and learned that we don't have to smoke, drink or use drugs to have fun. Parents took home information on how to talk to their children depending on their grade level and tips for being a more successful parent. Children took home refusal skills for healthy living. We hope to plan two events per year like this, one in fall and one in spring.
