Kindergarden to Success

August 12th, 2016 Posted in Fulton Campus News

Kindergarden to SuccessIn May, kindergarten students arrived on the Fulton Campus from Granby Elementary wearing t-shirts donated by the Cayuga Community College for the Kindergarten to College Success Program (K2C) developed by Donna Petersen ’07, a Learning Specialist, English/Adjunct Instructor.  The Program was created to promote the early literacy connection in the elementary classroom between the College’s Early Childhood Education Program and the local school district in which Cayuga Fulton students complete their practicum placements.

The children were welcomed by Mrs. “P” along with the Fulton Division Chair, Dr. Robert Humphrey.  Throughout the day, the students enjoyed a germ demonstration with Professor Jennifer Nichols ’01 in the nursing lab, and a read aloud with Librarian and Associate Professor Judy Campanella ’78, who wowed the children with her story about the superhero monster who helped save the Earth.  The children then became superheroes themselves by creating their own capes with stickers and crayons.

Their day was completed with a stop at the Barnes & Noble bookstore, where David Alliger ’08 and his crew rewarded them with a tasty treat of hot chocolate.  Before leaving, the students received a CCC goody bag.
