As 2023 came to a close, students at Learn to Earn Dayton's Mighty Classrooms (with Trotwood-Madison) benefitted from some seasonal encouragement.
Kindergarteners and first graders got a special visit from University of Dayton Flyer Koby Brea. Brea read basketball-themed stories, signed pictures that the students had drawn, shared insights about college, and encouraged the students to show up to school every day.
The following week, the Men's Basketball team visited second graders to talk with the students, distribute gifts, read a story, answer questions, and deliver best wishes for the holiday season.
The Mighty Classrooms are an initiative of Learn to Earn Dayton's Early Grade Literacy Collaborative, made possible with support from The Iddings Foundation. This partnership with Dayton 6th focuses on encouraging all students to show up to school every day. The
basketball players emphasize that just as every play on the court matters in winning a big game, every day in school matters in reaching for academic goals.
Check out the photos below, and we encourage your to follow Dayton6th on Twitter to see all the action (and this great video put together by their team)!
