Hardee’s in Georgetown Donates Breakfast to Local Students Enrolled in Saturday School
Meals Donated for Georgetown Middle School Students
Dover, Delaware – Communities in Schools of Delaware (CISDE), dedicated to empowering students to stay in school and achieve in life, is sponsoring “Saturday School” for Georgetown students. The mission of CISDE is to surround students with a community of support by providing the “five basics” every child needs and deserves; a one-on-one caring relationship with an adult, a safe place to learn and grow, promotion of a healthy lifestyle, the development of a marketable skill and a way to give back to the community.
Saturday School aims to advance test scores and assist students academically. After they arrive and eat breakfast, approximately 100 of the 6th through 8th grade students focus on math, language arts and enrichment. Enrichment topics include gym, art, martial arts, drama, zumba and cooking.
Communities in Schools of Delaware site director Jenn Graybeal explains, “I’m very surprised and pleased at the overwhelming response from the kids! They really seem to enjoy coming in to Saturday School, even though it’s on their free time. I think that they look forward to their breakfast, enjoy the different feel of the academics, and appreciate an opportunity to explore their self-chosen elective. ”
Complete breakfasts for all students, for a total of 8 sessions, were donated by the Hardee’s of Georgetown. Manager Donna Chasteen adds, “Hardee’s is proud to be involved with education and always happy to support the local community and students.”
