Traveling Bears Program Completes Another “Beary” Successful Year!
As part of our commitment to being an active partner in our community, Hixson leads several programs designed to help students at St. Francis de Sales grade school learn and engage with the world around them. One such program, The Traveling Bears, provides each of the school’s first-grade students with a special bear that they name at the beginning of the school year. The bears then “go” on journeys both near and far and write back (with help from Hixson associates) on postcards to their students throughout the school year from the places they visit. At the year-end party (like the one for this year shown here), bears are reunited with their owners and students are given a special commemorative booklet to help them remember their bear’s journey.
