BATTLE CREEK, Mich (WOOD) – Throughout the summer, Maranda and the Park Party crew have been traveling around West Michigan to various feeding programs at local school districts. This time, they headed to Battle Creek Montessori Academy to give thanks to food service workers! While there, Maranda was able to learn about all the efforts teachers are doing to make sure students are taken care of – both with meals and with learning!
Throughout the summer, teachers at Battle Creek Montessori Academy are doing virtual learning to provide summer school to kids who choose to join. They make learning fun with awesome activities and even encouraging kids to keep learning at home through every day tasks like gardening and cooking.
Due to the current reality of our world, the usual Maranda Park Parties we unable to happen, but that didn’t stop Maranda from bringing summer fun to kids in West Michigan! This summer every child in West Michigan still has a chance to win big with Maranda handing out prizes virtually!
