Eureka City Schools is delighted to announce Alice Birney Elementary school is the first Northern Humboldt County school to receive a grant from the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP). The FFVP is a federal program providing free fresh fruits and vegetables to students in participating elementary schools. The goal of the program is to create healthier eating habits amongst our youngest children to positively impact their present and future health. Through the FFVP, Alice Birney is expanding the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience and encouraging healthy eating habits with hopes that they last a life time.
Alice Birney School will be holding its annual English Learner Kindergarten (ELK) Academy this August. The ELK Academy is a free program designed to prepare our newest students to succeed in the classroom and on the playground.
Academic and social activities will be provided that are aimed at teaching key skills that promote short-term success and long-term growth. Snacks will also be provided at mid-day to all students.
The ELK Academy is free to parents and will run from Monday, August 15, to Friday, August 19. Each day will begin at 8:30am and end at 11:30am. All ELK Academy students who complete the program will earn a free tee shirt commemorating their accomplishment!
