Lincoln Elementary School Principal Sam Skeels said the first round of the program was "wonderful." "We offered soccer and cheerleading and both were really well-attended," he said.
Skeels said he appreciates the partnership with the YMCA to help ensure any child wanting to be a part of the program can be, even if the $10 per-student cost is difficult to meet.
"The YMCA is willing to work and keep costs to families as low as possible," Skeels said. "Anything we as a public school can do outside the day cost-free or at a minimal cost is a good thing for families." Skeels said in addition to being health-promoting, the kids continue to be in their safe environment longer. Page 2 of 2 - "We have 75 kids that are staying after school and being active when there are alternatives after school that may not be as healthy, safe or enriching," he said. "The longer we can keep kids at school and productive, the better." "The YMCA has been a great partner and the Maple Pride program is another shining example of that," Skeels said.

Lincoln Elementary School Principal Sam Skeels said that the Foster Grandparent Program is an "integral part of the success of our school." "They help with academics, they help teachers and add to the atmosphere," Skeels said. "We call them all 'grandma.'" The Foster Grandparent Program - through the Lenawee County Department on Aging - provides volunteers 55 years or older at 20-30 hours a week at education locations in Lenawee, Monroe and Hillsdale counties. Skeels said he appreciates the five volunteers in ways that words cannot adequately express. "They love and care about the kids," Skeels said. "That for me as a principal is what I want in all adults. To have foster grandmas come here out of the goodness of their heart, what a blessing that is. "If I could put one in every single classroom, I'd do it in a heartbeat," Skeels said.
