My Life Youth IncYOUbator Summer Experience

“We are now accepting enrollment for our 2019 Summer Experience and still have a few spaces remaining. We are seeking youth ages 7-17 who are looking to discover their talents, build their own personal brand and learn new skills that will help them prepare for the future of work, business and higher education. Each age group has their own unique cohort. It’s also a fun and exciting experience each summer with competitive and cooperative competitions and challenges with top companies that can lead to internships or an investment in a business idea they’ve created. I was told you were the best person to contact and send this information to, please see below. Please feel free to forward the attached email and flyer to parents and students who may be interested in applying.

We are looking forward to building relationship with you and your school! If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me directly and I would be happy to share more information with you.”

Cobb County Public Library System FREE Eye Exam and FREE Glasses for Kids ages 5-18!

The Atlanta area Vision To Learn mobile clinic will return to Cobb County Public Libraries during Spring Break 2019, April 1st – April 5th.

The Cobb County and Marietta City school districts have provided impactful support by promoting the Vision To Learn visits at Cobb libraries. VTL provides free vision screenings, eye exams and free glasses to children.

So far, 136 children have received free eyeglasses as the result of the VTL visits at Cobb libraries. Through planned VTL library events, the milestone of 250 children receiving glasses through VTL in Cobb is within reach.

 Cobb families may download the VTL registration forms at www.cobbcat.org. The dates listed below include links to the calendar entries and registration forms. Space is limited.

The upcoming Spring Break VTL events include:

  • Monday, April 1, 9:30 am to 3 pm: South Cobb Regional Library, 805 Clay Rd., Mableton 30126. 678- 398-5828
  • Tuesday, April 2, 9:30 am to 3 pm: Switzer Library, 266 Roswell St., Marietta 30060. 770-528-2320
  • Wednesday, April 3, 9:30 am to 3 pm: Gritters Library, 880 Shaw Park Rd., Marietta 30066. 770-528-2524
  • Thursday, April 4, 9:30 am to 3 pm: Stratton Library, 1100 Powder Springs Rd. SW, Marietta 30064. 770-528-2522
  • Friday, April 5, 9:30 am to 3 pm: West Cobb Regional Library, 1750 Dennis Kemp Lane, Kennesaw 30152. 770-528-4699

As you know, about 20 percent of the 50,000 Cobb County elementary school children would fail a vision screening and about 8,000 will need glasses.

 

The gap in vision care is a high cost for the health and prosperity of Cobb County families and the Cobb economy. The good news is vision screenings provided by VTL, volunteers from Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation and area Lions Clubs, and others are playing a significant role in elevating vision as a critical early literacy issue. The vision movement is growing in our region.

Operation Gratitude

The Kindness Club’s Character Trait for this month is: Gratitude

 

We would like to show our heroes our gratitude for their service by sending letters through Operation Gratitude!

 

“Operation Gratitude sends 250,000+ Care Packages each year to Deployed Troops, Veterans, New Recruits & First Responders Of all the items included in these Care Packages, the most cherished are the personal letters of appreciation.”

 

We would love to have all Huskies help us with our Operation J ! If you are interested in having your class participate, just simply keep in mind the letter writing tips (below).

There will be a box in the mailroom where you can place all of your letters.

We will be sending them off on December 7th!

WRITING TIPS! 

All deserve to be thanked for their commitment and bravery!

  • Start with a generic salutation, such as “Dear Hero” or “Dear Brave One.”
  • Express your thanks for their selfless service.
  • Avoid politics completely and religion in excess; however, saying you will pray for them is wonderful.
  • Share a little about yourself: Family, Hobbies, Work, School, Pets, Travel, etc.
  • Talk about life and interests: : Your community, Sports, Weather, Music, Movies, Food, Books, etc.
  • Adults: Include your contact information (mail or email) so the letter recipient can reply.
    (Recipients may or may not write back; please do not be disappointed if you do not receive a response.)
  • Children’s Letters: Include first names only and do not include addresses (an adult’s address can be used).
  • Can’t find the words? Consider drawing or painting a picture instead; please add a note to kids’ drawings with their age.
  • No glitter or confetti please!
  • Do not put your individual cards or letters in envelopes—they are not needed and create a burden for our letter screeners.
