Program 1

Once a Brave Always a Brave

Each incoming kindergartner and senior are presented with a T-Shirt - that says on the front Once a Brave and it has the starting school year and on the back is says Always a Brave with their graduation year on the back. The senior will come to the elementary campus and speak to the kindergartners about what it means to them to be a Brave.
The community response has been amazing! The connections between the seniors and kinders is great - they ask questions and are just so excited that the seniors would come and visit them.
