CES Pre-K Valentine Parent Involvement

Posted on Friday, March 8, 2019 at 10:47 am

Coalmont Elementary School Pre-K students, with the help of Home Depot of Manchester, had a little “heart-to-heart” time with parents and guardians this month.
According to Pre-K Teacher Barbara Bryant, students and parents were given the opportunity to construct and play a Valentine’s Day bean bag toss game with materials donated by the Home Depot.
“It is always such a treat to bring students and parents together in a learning environment,” Bryant said. “We are amazed to see how much joy it brings to the students when they are able to show their parents what they can accomplish with their hands. This is also a great way to teach our students they can build with raw materials, follow directions, and not have to be plugged into an electronic device at all times. This activity requires physical movement and hand-eye coordination.”
Bryant added that each year the Home Depot donates a Valentine bean bag toss to CES, and that the turnout is overwhelming at the Pre-K.
