GSRP students say ‘Hats (and scarves!) Off’ to the St Cyprian Crafters

Great Start Readiness Program in Riverview – GSRP for short – lead by Tiffanie Plackowski and Jennifer Campau recently received a generous donation of hand knitted hats and scarves from the St Cyprian Parish Crafters. 

This group of crafters meets every Wednesday in the parish social hall. Ann is the leader of this group and she approached the GSRP teaching staff early in October with her plan and made sure the crafters would be able to make enough hats and scarves for each preschooler.

Since the GSRP school is attached to the parish, this year the GSRP students had the opportunity to walk down to the social hall to pick up the hats and scarves themselves. 

They were able to meet this group of crafters and personally thank them for their generosity. 

This is the second year in a row that these ladies have generously donated hats and scarves to these young children who were so excited to show off their new accessories!

Bowl night at Ten Pins

On Dec.10 Ten Pins of Trenton sponsored a bowling night for GSRP preschoolers. The last three years we have had a field trip there.

The owner – Dave Patz – generously donates free bowling, shoe rental and pizza/pop to our kids! 

Our first year prior to the trip, we played YouTube videos for students on bowling safety, how to play, not to push the “reset” button, cross the black line, etc before going. 

The crew there said our 4-5 year olds were the best best behaved and well-informed group he’s ever had for a field trip and they continue to invite us back.
