Superior – For over 15 years, the Superior Head Start school program has sponsored the “Old Phoenix Road” highway cleanup. The children enjoyed taking part in helping keep their community clean as part of their Earth Day activities.

Following the Old Phoenix Road, the Superior Head Start students took a walk around the neighborhood collecting trash. As they walked, the children spoke about what they saw around them, including what businesses are located in town and where their homes are. The cleanup was concluded by taking a nature walk to the park where the children enjoyed a pizza picnic with all the fixings, before touring the Chamber Tourist Caboose Information Center.

Earlier during the week, Superior Head Start celebrated the Week of the Young Child and participated in RIF Day on Apr. 18. The children created their own nursery rhymes and fairytales and each received a free book provided by Macy’s to add to their personal library. The children also collected stones inside their school playground.

The teacher explained about the Native American tradition of using the talking stone and how each student should only talk when holding the stone. The children all took turns searching for stones and waited their turn to speak. Some children had numbers written on the stones, whereas others had their names written on stones. All of the activities are part of learning school readiness.
