Thank You 122nd Street Elementary School and City Year
The Wildlife Waystation would like to give a big thanks to 122nd Street Elementary School, City Year and Alexa Turton for welcoming us into your school for a wildlife education program and annual Career Day! In April, we visited the City Year after-school program and students learned about the Waystation, native Southern California wildlife and met our opossum, a Great-Horned Owl and an African Pygmy Hedgehog. Last week, we returned to 122nd Street E.S. for their Annual Career Day and were very impressed with the school's dedication to promoting positive role models for the kids. Keep up the great work City Year and 122nd Street Elementary School!! You are truly inspiring, and are making quite an impact in the lives of the students at your school and throughout the community!
If you are interested in scheduling an educational program with the Wildlife Waystation, please visit us at http://wildlifewaystation.org/outreach-and-off-ranch-events or email info@wildlifewaystation to start planning today! If you would like to donate to the Waystation or make enrichment items for our Great Apes and other primates, please check out our wishlist at wildlifewaystation.worldsecuresystems.com/wws-wish-list .
City Year partners with school districts to place corps members in the schools that need it the most. They provide students with one-on-one support to overcome challenges they face both in and out of school and, in addition to working with individual students who are at-risk of dropping out, City Year also provides support to help transform the whole school – including leading school-wide events and activities, after school programming, and in class support for teachers.
