On March 29th the Teens-N-Tots Early Learning Center hosted the Annual Trike Race in the Central Gym. This fundraising event brings together FCHS classroom sponsors and speedster preschoolers with decked-out trikes doing laps to raise funds for The Donna Sink Pediatric Fund. The fund provides support to families with children facing complex medical diagnoses.
The trike race has proven a favorite spring event for racers and their teen teachers. "Our goal is to play, learn, and grow together. Teen Teachers get hands-on experience working with and teaching children and preparing tots for their next school year, whether it be PreK or Kindergarten. The trike race fits into our mission because it helps develop social and gross motor skills, helps a charity, and involves our FC community," Teens-N-Tots teacher Jessica Leftwich explained.
