EPIC Presents Award to Lindbergh Elementary
EPIC - Every Person Influences Children – will be presenting an award to Charles A. Lindbergh Elementary School on Wednesday, April 11, at the school’s PTA meeting at 7pm. The meeting will take place at Lindbergh, located at 184 Irving Terrace in Buffalo, 14223, on the second floor in the library. The award is to acknowledge and thank the school, the PTA and the students for collecting winter clothing items (hats, mittens, and scarves) every Holiday season for over ten years. These items were collected and distributed to close to 1,000 WNY parents and children that EPIC serves through its various family support programs.
EPIC started providing programming at Lindbergh (as well as other Ken-Ton schools) in 2000, when Linda Croglia was Principal. EPIC conducted its Parents as Advocates workshops, which is training that develops the skills of parents to help their children succeed academically; to build individual relationships with the child and teacher; to create a supportive home environment; and to understand school systems, academic standards, assessments, and college/career readiness expectations.
Through this partnership, the PTA began its “Giving Tree” warm weather clothing drive to help the families that EPIC serves.
