Baby Braves Class Reunion: A Big Hit!

The Baby Braves and their families gathered at Centralhatchee Park on Saturday, June 9 for a reunion

(Centralhatchee, GA) — The Summer Baby Braves Class Reunion was held June 9th at Centralhatchee Park.

Approximately 300 participants gathered at the park for an afternoon of fun.

Activities included a train ride, snow cones, bubble station, math lego station, bowling for kids, face painting, sidewalk chalk, and park playground activities.

The parents visited Information stations where they met with teachers who provided information concerning Reading Readiness, Developmental Milestones, Reading and Sensory Activities, Language and Speech Development.

Representatives from the Heard County Health Department also shared information with parents. As parents signed in for the event, there was an opportunity to meet the Principal or Assistant Principal of the elementary school where their child would attend.

All Baby Braves were given a book and bookmark to take home. Everyone enjoyed food and a drawing for door prizes.

The Baby Braves program is one of the most innovative ideas of its time.

It was a collaborative idea developed two years ago as a way to connect school, community, and parents in an attempt to ensure school readiness.

The program has gained momentum and is now almost 400 strong.

Events like this could not be accomplished without the support of parents, school, and community. We had many donations of door prizes and volunteers who assisted with the event.

Heard County is leading the way in these types of innovative ideas. From birth to graduation, we are working to connect with students, parents, and community.
