Sometimes it takes just a small idea to create a ripple of change.That is what is happening in the Washougal School District this summer.
At Hathaway Elementary School, students from pre-kindergarten through high school level are receiving extra academic help, along with free, nutritious lunches; and they are participating in enrichment activities.
This is the result of a collaboration between district administrators, teachers, staff, health centers and local volunteers.
“Even just at the beginning of this program, the level of conversation, the amount of attention each of these kids are able to receive, is so beneficial,” said David Tudor, curriculum director.
