The first of four Kids at Hope Destination Days was held at Sunnyslope School on September 30. Kids at Hope’s vision is that every child is afforded the belief, guidance and encouragement that creates a sense of hope and optimism, supported by a course of action needed to experience success at life’s four major destinations.
“Home and Family” was the theme of this first Destination Day, where students invited their parents, guardians, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters and grandparents to school. Every classroom in every grade level held activities for students and their families to participate in throughout the day including creating family trees and sharing in family customs and traditions from the school’s diverse background.
“It’s a great opportunity for our school community to come together,” said Student Services Specialist Julio Valenzuela.
The other three destinations are: Education and Career, Community and Service, and Hobbies and Recreation.
“Everyone asks what kids ‘want to be’ when they grow up,” said Sunnyslope Principal Chance Whiteman. “We should also be focusing on our students’ future destinations in so many more areas.”
Those questions include:
Where do you want to live?
What will your future family be like?
Who do you want to help when you grow up?
What will you enjoy doing for fun in the future?
Where do you want to go to college?
Do you want to start a business?
