Keep Kids in School

Missed the school bus; stayed up too late overslept; no one got me up; didn't stay at my house last night; no way to get to school; our car broke down; we were out of town; mom got a new job and isn't home in the mornings, angry with the school; angry with the teacher; afraid of a student; don’t understand the work; have something else I would rather be doing; unaddressed medical needs; vacation; just don’t like school; they don’t like me…..

Bright Hopes Pre-K Strong Start Project


This project provides character building and educational activities and support to raising kindergartners from two identified communities.  Students get to practice sharing, taking turns, making good choices and so much more.   They also get to take home books to start or add to their home library.
