The event featured food and gave students time to meet with teachers and staff, but the most popular activities were face painting and a large bounce slide.
“The community and neighborhood were welcomed with open arms to have fun at Prevail,” Dean of Instruction Canise Stewart-Singleton said. “Prevail stood out as a safe place to take your scholars for free social activities. It was impactful because our staff were able to engage with new, current, and prospective scholars. We were able to impact our community and neighborhood beyond academics.”
That’s an important opportunity for Prevail, which has outperformed the local district for the past 13 years.
Children were able to eat with their family and friends and decide which animal to portray with face paint. Butterflies were the most popular choice of the day.
“It was great seeing our scholars at events like these,” Stewart-Singleson said. “We had the chance to reconnect while school was out and see their huge smiles as they saw us as well beyond the classroom.”
Great job connecting with community, Prevail!
