LITERACY BACKPACK DAY - JUNE 20, 2014

Every year, ABC Head Start provides backpacks to our children filled with the tools they need to be successful in their educational journey.  Watching the faces of the children as they receive their backpacks is priceless, as they light up with excitement and joy.  The backpacks are filled with books, crayons, pencils, a "reading buddy" (stuffed teddy), a glue stick, and many more tools to support their learning.  

For just $40 you can buy a backpack for an ABC Head Start child.  

Our goal is to raise $20,000, that's 500 backpacks, for June 20.  Help us reach our...

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I was pondering once again how great my job is.  Here at ABC Head Start Society I get to write all of the THANK YOU letters and cards.  What an awesome job!  I love handwriting cards and putting down my sincere thoughts and gratitude in writing.  And I tell ya, there is a lot to be thankful for when you are the Development & Stakeholder Relations Manager at ABC Head Start Society.  The community support we receive EVERY.  SINGLE.  DAY.  is truly touching.  

This week ALONE we received two gifts, one from Associated Engineering and one from University of...

A few of us ABC Head Start Society staff were at an event on Thursday.  We had the opportunity to chat with community members.  Some of the community members had never heard of our organization before, or some related ABC Head Start strictly to education.  As we discussed ABC Head Start Society, it was wonderful to be able to say "Oh but we are so much more than an education program."  ABC Head Start provides support and programming for the whole family.  The Head Start program is geared towards children ages 2 - 5 years old AND THEIR FAMILIES because we realize that that is where the big changes...

When I was on my little "vacation" from ABC Head Start Society, I had the opportunity to work with some really outstanding leaders.  One of these inspirational leaders had an employee book club.  He presented books employees could learn and grow from and everyone had the opportunity to be involved.  We read some really great books.  

The last book I received was James Kerr's, Legacy.  It was gifted to me right before I went on my maternity leave.  I was in a very busy job and I intentionally took my maternity two months early so I could RELAX, take bubble baths, get the baby room ready and read...
