Students showcase goals at SERRF event
The theme of "You Matter" was richly displayed and taught through a variety of activities during the SERRF Highlights Show held Wednesday afternoon at Woodson Elementary School in Corning.
SERRF Highlights Show is an event which gives students in 25 Tehama County school site-based SERRF After School Program an opportunity to showcase their goals, efforts and accomplishments for the school year.
The Woodson School event comprised a number of SERRF sites, including Elkins/Flournoy, Kirkwood, Maywood, Olive View, Rancho Tehama, Richfield, Vina, West Street and Woodson.
"It is like a big party with something for everyone to enjoy and learn something," said Beth Birk, SERRF Recreation Specialist.
Visitors and participants enjoyed a $1 hot dog meal, and each school sponsored a booth - Elkins/Flournoy booth was "Health Matters" featuring bowling fun, Kirkwood taught "Our Senses Matter," Maywood School explored Gak with its "Stuck on Maywood" booth, Olive View School featured "Families Matter," and students made "You Matter" necklaces at the Rancho Tehama booth, as Richfield School's "Show Goldy That He Matters" booth kept students busy with a great bingo game.
Vina School's booth focused on "Your Heart Matters," while West Street School's booth featured parachute fun and "You Matter Stars," and Woodson School's booth was "Wacky Wisdom Watters."
Most of the schools had picture displays of activities students have participated in throughout the school year.
Corning Police Department cadets greeted students and their families, served hot dog dinners and were the official escorts for a couple of special visitors, "Mario and Luigi," whose antics thrilled children of all ages.
A few county and city officials even showed up for the event, including Corning City Councilman John Leach and Tehama County Supervisor Ron Warner.
"It is great to see what the students are up to and to see what they are learning," Warner said.
