Pacers Outing

Each ESE site selected the two students who received the most RICHER Right-Ups this school year to attend the Pacers game on February 10. Congratulations to Lucy and Chloe for representing Prairie Trace ESE! We are very proud of these two for continuously demonstrating RICHER principles in our program.

Lucy and Chloe, Ms. Chilemba from Prairie Trace, and the students and staff from other sites all got to go onto the court to hold a huge Pacers flag during the pre-game ceremony. They then went to their seats to enjoy the rest of the game along with their parents. Although the Pacers weren’t quite able to pull off the win, missing their last second shot for the win, everyone had a great time!

Table Games

With activities changing each quarter, this time around we have a new club called Table Games! This club combines the student’s love of flipping bottles, cups, and competitiveness with party games! Some of the favorites so far have been flip cup tic tac toe, musical bottle flipping, and cup stackers. Not only does this club offer fun games for the students, but has also given us some ideas for filler games that the students can play when we are in-between transitions. Even if this club doesn’t make a comeback, it will definitely have had an impact on our program. We are happy that the kids had such a great time with this club, and hope they vote it back in the future!

Kids at Prairie Trace Elementary Extended School Enrichment (ESE) before and after school program

First, I want to say how thankful we are for our parents/guardians understanding and patience during this time. We are in a very unique situation, and your positivity and support for our team means so much! I also wanted to share that during this time we are continuing to pay our full- and part-time staff. I wanted to take this time to reiterate that ESE is closed through April 10 and School’s Out Spring Break Camp is canceled. Refunds/credits have been issued. If you have any questions, please reach out to your Site Supervisor, they will be able to assist you! Should anything change, we will be in contact with you. I also wanted to share some resources for you while you’re home with kiddos. First, Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation’s parks and greenways are still open! Our parks and greenways are a great place for you and your family to get fresh air and stay active while practicing social distancing. We also have several educational resources on our website, carmelclayparks.com/coronavirus-information, in the “Kids at Home?” drop down, and plan to post fitness and nature education content regularly on our social media channels (@CarmelClayParks on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter). While we greatly miss seeing your kiddo(s) every day, we know we are doing the right thing to keep our families and staff safe. We will see you soon!
