Serving Our Communities: Hixson in the Classroom
Fall is here, and that means that Hixson has returned to the classroom as part of our Partners in Education program! Throughout the coming months, Hixson will again work on multiple initiatives with our partner school, St. Francis de Sales, which serves children from pre-k through eighth grade. These initiatives include:
- Traveling Bears, which provides each first-grade student with a special bear that “sends” postcards from its journeys throughout the year.
- Pen Pals, a program designed to improve writing and reading skills by pairing second-grade students with a pen pal from Hixson. Throughout the year, the students, working with their teacher, write and send letters to their Hixson pen pal and receive letters in return.
- Junior Achievement. Hixson associates volunteer in third through eighth-grade classrooms to teach J.A. lesson plans on topics such as financial literacy, career readiness, and the basics of a free-market economy.
The Hixson Partners in Education program is just one way our associates help realize our commitment to provide service to the communities in which we live and work. Discover more here!
