The Herald-Times had a front page story today by reporter Andy Graham about yesterday’s “Moving Up” ceremony and the Head Start program at the Broadview Adult Education Center.

Here’s an excerpt from the story — a quote from Broadview Head Start teacher Ruth Anderson:
“The goal is to help prepare them for lifelong learning, in part by getting their parents and families involved,” she said. “The kids do so much better when parents are engaged, are reading to them on a daily basis, are talking with them about learning. Our parents have really responded.”
The parents of children in Anderson’s class set a goal of 5,000 volunteer hours this school year, and exceeded it by contributing 5,170 hours.
There’s also a gallery of photos taken by H-T photographer Jeremy Hogan at yesterday’s event at Broadview. You don’t need an H-T subscription to access that. Check out that photo gallery by clicking here.
