Highlights, Shout-outs & Tidbits

Welcome to "CCP Corner". This electronic newsletter will provide a brief overview of the exciting things that are taking place throughout our department. We are a big department and cover many areas, so this will hopefully help us all feel connected around our purpose of serving students, families, and our communities.


Apple Crunch Day

On October 13th, preschool and elementary students throughout Genesee County celebrated Michigan’s Apple Crunch Day, an event which celebrates Michigan agriculture and builds connections with local farmers. Nutrition facilitators from the SNAP-Ed program delivered over 5,000 apples to schools so students could be part of this fun event!

Michigan led the Great Lakes States in the number of crunchers on October 17, 2016!

You are all so awesome!

GISD Dailey Head Start Staff Walk in 2016 Breast Cancer Walk

GISD Dailey Head Start staff walked in the 2016 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event held in Flint on October 8, 2016. They participated in memory of Keyla Adams a Dailey staff member who died of Breast Cancer on October 18, 2014. Keyla was loved and is missed by the staff and families of the Head Start community at Dailey.
In 2015 five staff walked in Keyla's memory. This year seventeen staff, wearing grey shirts and jackets with "Team Keyla" printed in pink, were involved in the Breast Cancer Walk raising money to contribute to the fund to find a cure for the disease that is the number two killer of women in America today!
Team Keyla's message is: "Get your mammogram today!" Early detection saves lives! Join Team Keyla next year for the 2017 Breast Cancer Walk! Tutus are welcome!
