Our Ongoing Projects:

  • BUG – Bringing Up Grades  – Townsend and Walland Elementary Schools
    •  The “BUG” program, spear-headed by Sandy Headrick, is given twice a year to recognize the students who have improved their grade(s) since the previous marking period. They are invited to enjoy a snack and receive a “bug” along with a cookie and drink. Usually the school’s principal has a few words of recognition and encouragement for continued progress.
  • K-Kids – Townsend Elementary School
    • The K-Kids program is lead by Andy Jones. It is similar to a club where the students elect their officers and work on fund raising projects for their school.
  • Outdoor Classroom – Townsend Elementary School
