Pen Pals and Traveling Bears: Helping Kids Learn at St. Francis De Sales

Last week, Hixson associates headed back to our partner in education school St. Francis De Sales to wrap up two of the programs in which we are involved: Pen Pals and Travelling Bears.

Second-grade students were excited to finally meet the Hixson associates who served as their Pen Pals this past school year. Each student got to meet and sit with their Pen Pal and other friends and enjoy some pizza and cookies for lunch and talk about their summer plans.

Also wrapping up was the Travelling Bears program. First-grade students were amazed by all the places their bears had travelled this year (courtesy of Hixson associates), and were delighted to have their bears come back to them after receiving post cards from them throughout the school year.
