msdwashingtontwpBig Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana (BBBSCI) again partnered with Metropolitan School District of Washington Township (MSDWT) to designate October 27, 2016 as a day for youth (Littles) to bring their mentors (Bigs) to school. “Take Your Big to School Day” is a result of district-wide partnership between MSDWT and BBBSCI in an effort to further involve Bigs in the academic life of their Littles as they play a critical role in the academic success of their Littles. Darcey Palmer-Shultz, BBBSCI CEO, shares, “Our Bigs are helping their Littles succeed in many ways everyday – building their confidence, helping them plan for the future, working on studying skills and homework, and helping them build character and make positive choices. For our Bigs, we hope this is a helpful way for them to learn more about their Littles as students and be more prepared to coach their Littles in ways that will support them academically. For our Littles, we believe it will further improve their attitudes toward school as they get to be the VIPs for the day while their Bigs shadow them. For our school partners, we feel this is a meaningful way to further build the bridges between more of the people – in this case, mentors and teachers – working hard to help our community’s kids succeed.”
