Blankets for the Ronald McDonald House
[by Amanda Ables, re-posted from the Spring 2019 STLR Newsletter]
Meet Rachel, Jackie, Sydney, and Abbie – STLR student researchers! These amazing ladies, along with their STLR project supervisor, Dr. Genia James, have created an after-school program for fourth and fifth graders at Linwood Elementary! Every Monday afternoon, these future teachers interact with the kids at the school, and have created curricula that focuses on social and emotional interaction.
They do classroom activities, along with games, arts, and crafts.
Very recently, these student researchers and the Linwood students made blankets for other kids who were in need, and delivered them personally to the Ronald McDonald House and City Rescue Mission. This group is making a huge impact on the lives of these children, and truly showing what it means to give back.
The STLR office is so proud to be able to support this project that is so positively impacting the OKC Metropolitan community.
