Healthy Living Day at Sheridan Beacons

In partnership with the University YMCA,  Sheridan Beacons had a exhilarating day dedicated to health and fitness.   University YMCA students planned and prepared three different stations for Sheridan Beacons young people to experience:  healthy wrap making, gardening and learning some new dance moves.  Young people learned different ways to be a YMCA healthy kid, tried new foods and got to move their bodies, all the while created strong relationships with college students.  Thank you University YMCA volunteers for an amazing day!

Ladders of Leadership at Sheridan Beacons

Ladders of Leadership at Sheridan Beacons

Sheridan Beacons is made up of AMAZING leaders!   A few of our AMAZING leaders have been chosen to be mentors to our Kindergartners in our reading buddies program!  Twice a week a group of 3rd-5th graders reads to their kindergarten buddy for a half hour. With this increased responsibility they have developed strong positive relationships with younger Beacons students, inspiring them to grow up and be leaders like them.    
Shout out to these amazing students and their hard work!
