Tuesday, June 23rd, kicked off our annual Little Starfish Summer Camp. This week we are celebrating learning about the Community Helpers that keep our neighborhoods thriving.
Tuesday we focused on Garbage Collectors, Recycling and Postal Workers. We took a walk through the halls of Hiveley and collected recycling from employees; we also wrote and decorated mail to give to some of our community helpers. On Wednesday, we are having a Police Officer from the area come to visit, talk to the kids about his work and how he helps out in the community. Thursday we are focusing on Doctors and Teachers. Lastly, on Friday we are taking a field trip to the Inkster Fire Department.
We had 60 participants on Tuesday, children ages 2-5 and their parents; which was an awesome outcome to the event. It was a wonderful day and we look forward to the rest of the week!
