Autumn everyone! The crisp air has begun to descend and we are
reminded that the warm days of summer are behind us. We are now up
and running our Fall programming. Fall is usually considered a time
for harvest and being thankful, in line with that, we have dedicated
this issue to honor the parents of our beloved afterschool programs.
We have a feature article this month that provides excellent advice
and tips for parents at all stages. As we are now in the final
quarter of this year, I also encourage you to use this Fall season
as a time to reflect on the challenges and triumphs of 2018. Gear up
for 2019, we look forward to continuing our work in the programs, in
our our community and in supporting national endeavors such as
Breast Cancer and Domestic Violence awareness.
This month we would like to highlight the Office Manager of the Light House at the Winthrop Beacon, Ms. Ashley Dunlap. Ashley came to Sesame through the SFI Steel Pan Orchestra in 2011. She displayed her leadership abilities as a player/manager and since then, she has contributed to Sesame Flyers providing administrative support to the Main Office and Cultural Center and she has been an integral part of the Light House staff.
This past summer, Ashley
took on a leadership role and greater responsibility in our Summer
Camp program, which helped in its overall success. Outside of the
Light House, Ashley is a senior at Brooklyn College in the
Speech-Language Pathology program and doing extremely well in her
classes. We are grateful to have an asset such as Ashley a part of
the Sesame Flyers staff. We look forward to continued greatness from
Flyers takes pride in our afterschool programs where we offer free
activities and classes to children and adults in the community. Our
activities are designed to give our participants an outlet to
express their creativity and passion while acquiring life skills and
knowledge that can help them become positive role models in the
community and meet their short term and long term goals. To support
our younger participants reach their fullest potential, support and
participation of the parents in the community goes a very long way.
We are proud of our instructors and activity specialists who are
passionate and dedicated individuals. They create lesson plans and
activities that support full cognitive, emotional and behavioral
engagement. Participants will have the opportunity to exhibit their
knowledge and skills to their parents and peers at our showcases,
which will take place in December 2018 and June 2019.
As we all know parenting, although the most rewarding, is one of the toughest jobs on the planet. Yet, it does not come with a customized instruction manual. As a parent I am always looking for ways to improve my parenting skills and be the best Mom I can be for my girls. This month at 211 our program is being dedicated to building self-confidence in our participants with a leadership piece entitled "THE BEST ME". Self-confidence comes from a sense of competence. A confident child needs a positive and realistic perception of his or her abilities. This arises out of achievements, great and small. We ask that you the parents, guardians, siblings and extended family members join us on this mission to build your child's confidence. Your encouraging words can certainly help develop this confidence, especially when you refer to your child's specific efforts or abilities. Below are some great tips I've come across to build confidence in children.
take pride in introducing and welcoming Jamela O. Turner as our new
Assistant Director at the Winthrop Beacon Program. Ms. Turner is of
Jamaican heritage and happy to be working with an organization
committed to preserving Caribbean culture such as Sesame Flyers.
