The Back to School Carnival at Latonia this past weekend was an absolute party! There were games galore, and there was even a full-on feast of hot dogs, popcorn, and ice cream to keep those carnival cravings at bay.
After weeks of collecting school supplies, the team was able to hand out 45 backpacks to families, making sure the kiddos were ready to rock the school year in style. But it didn’t stop there! Our fantastic agents showed UP for the raffle, which raised another $400 in supplies! We’re all about supporting our community, and the Latonia team plans on spreading the love even further! Later this week, they’ll be dropping off paper, folders, crayons, notebooks, and binders to Latonia Elementary and Holmes High School – because we believe in setting students up for success!
So, there you have it – the Back to School Carnival at Latonia was a smashing success! A big thanks to everyone who came to the carnival and donated school supplies or participated in the raffle. What a fantastic way to start the school year!
Let’s talk about the incredible impact RDI has had through our partnership with Adopt A Class over the past school year – because when we say “making an impact,” we mean it in a big way!
Last school year, our team of 25 volunteers mentored students at Winton Hills Academy. The impact of this mentorship was significant – but don’t just take our word for it! 76% of students across Adopt A Class programs reported understanding the connection between schoolwork and a successful career.
One of the most encouraging results of the program was a follow-up survey of students. The survey showed a 32.7% increase in 6th-grade student interest in learning more about Cincinnati State and a 27.3% increase overall in 6th-grade students’ interest in attending college after high school.
These results are a testament to the power of mentorship. The more people rooting for and supporting students along their academic journey, the better equipped they will be to achieve their goals. We are proud to be a part of Adopt A Class and to help make a difference in the lives of young people in our communities.
There is nothing we can say to prepare you for this. You just have to see it for yourself.
