According to Head Start of Beaver County, the monthly groups provide families with a chance to have input on their children's education and learning, while helping parents build stronger relationships with teachers and the community.
Chris Phlegar of Chippewa, a teacher at the school, said the Ambridge Connection presentation was great because it links to the community by giving lots of options for involvement. Phlegar said the presentation was a nice overview of what is available locally and how to become more involved.
The Community College of Beaver County also made an impression at the school when the men's basketball team stopped in for a visit on Thursday.
Dewayne Walker of Aliquippa, head coach of the CCBC Titans, created a program called "Titan Cares," where he takes the team out into the community. The program helps teach the players that they need to be well-rounded and in the community .
Walker has been bringing the team to Head Start for five years.
Michelle Sovich, a teacher of three years, said she enjoyed having the CCBC Titans in for a visit. She said the players are good role models.
Thank you to the Beaver County Head Start for inviting us out.
