Our next Spotlight focuses on Chinatown YMCA’s Jean Parker After School Program! Students at Jean Parker learn about different subjects through hands on projects. The After School Program have a partnership with Broadway Gardens (a community garden) where they learn about the plant life cycle. On Valentines Day, students celebrate love and kindness with flower inspired crafts and heart shaped French toast. In Science Club, students explored surface tension, chemical reactions, disc golf, and candle making. In support and preparation for the 40th Annual Chinese New Year Run, Program Leaders designed a curriculum for Run Club where students participated in stretches and sprints. Finally, Jean Parker students, families and staff joined over 1300 other runners in the Chinese New Year 5K/10K run where proceeds support Chinatown After School Programs!
Way to go Jean Parker! Keep up the great work!
