On July 13, we hosted our fourth annual Moonshot Moment Summer Learning Day!
The School District of Indian River County produced a video to showcase events throughout Indian River on National Summer Learning Day. Check out their video below!
We brought a "Stone Soup" experience to 450 students during the day at the SDIRC south and north county summer camps, as well as the Sebastian and Fellsmere Boys and Girls Clubs.
The students enjoyed a live performance by the Indian River Charter High School Drama Troupe, learning a new summer dance, and writing inspirational reading messages on rocks (stones) at our Moonshot Reading Rocket bus.
In the evening, over 200 people participated in The Learning Alliance's fourth annual Moonshot Summer Learning Day Family Pizza Party at the Heritage Center. The facility was beautifully decorated by artist Cat Faust, and her talented husband, Principal Adam Faust, dressed as a blue genie to emcee host the event. We even had a guest appearance from TLA's "Honey Bear" with presenter Debbie Dillon.
In addition to the entertaining drama performances that brought the stories to life, our guest readers included State Representative Erin Grall, School Board Member Tiffany Justice, Vero Beach Police Chief David Curry, and Assistant School Superintendent Pam Dampier.
Over 20 extremely helpful Moonshot volunteers supported the event, with the culminating performance by the Vero Beach Karate Association demo team.
