Hello everyone! Despite the unpredictable weather, the kids and coaches have had a great week outside practicing soccer. The High Valley Community Center (HVCC) will continue to have soccer practice south of the new school by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We will inform everyone about games and start times when we find out more information.
This week’s theme is self-identity. We aim to help the kids become more self-aware through activities such as blooming self-esteem and self-portraits. Our goal is to help the kids identify feelings so they can distinguish those feelings from their self-worth. We would like to acknowledge AJ this week for showing self-awareness by picking up the trash outside without being asked. Thank you, AJ!
We are happy to report that the HVCC circus is going well! The kiddos have been enjoying learning about aerial silks, hula hooping, ribbon twirling, tumbling, and clowning. This week, the kiddos will choose their favorite skill and will continue to practice until their performance on May 13.
Week three of our College and Career Exploration series was spent at Adams State University touring the campus and climbing at the rock-climbing gym. We would like to thank Adams State University for their generosity; allowing HVCC youths to explore their campus. Last week, the tour around Del Norte to an array of local businesses went well. Thank you also to all the Del Norte businesses who participated in our local tour. We appreciate your hospitality!
