Davidson Cares Clay Day: Focus on Five Learning Years

October 11, 2018

 | 

We are less than 3 weeks from this year’s sport shooting event, the 3rd Annual Davidson Cares Clay Day! This year’s event will directly benefit St. Augustine Youth Services (SAYS), Take Stock in Children and Five Learning Years (FLY).

 

The services these organizations provide are vital to Northeast Florida’s children. We want to give more information about each charity to let Clay Day participants know exactly where their contributions are going. Here we are focusing on FLY.

 

What is FLY?

According to the Florida Department of Education, extensive research on infant brain development shows that a child’s first five years are the most important time for learning.Because of this, FLY aims to prepare kids for learning success to ensure all children arrive at kindergarten academically, socially, emotionally and physically ready to learn.

 

FLY was created in 2012 after the INK! Executive Committee met with Dr. Joseph Joyner, then Superintendent of St. Johns County Schools, to discuss the issue of children entering kindergarten unprepared. The INK! team began forming FLY to ensure all kids benefit from these crucial years and start school ready to learn.

 

What programs do they offer?

FLY utilizes several resources to promote early learning including Nemours BrightStart!, Head Start, Healthy Families Florida, and Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) programs. Through these programs, every child in Florida regardless of family income has access to programs to prepare them for kindergarten. Learn more at the FLY web page.

 

How is FLY continuing to develop its services for kids?

The FLY task force meets regularly to determine current efforts to prepare kids for kindergarten and develop strategic plans to expand services where possible.

 

In addition to participating in Clay Day, how can people help FLY?

They accept tax-deductible donations (one-time or ongoing) through the INK! website. INK! eagerly encourages individuals andcompanies to donate. Nearly 90% of INK! donations are returned to schools to directly help students!

October 9, 2018

The 3rd Annual Davidson Cares Clay Day is fast approaching and we are thrilled to donate a portion of the proceeds from the event and supporting raffles to Take Stock in Children (TSIC).

 

Since 1998, TSIC has been under the umbrella of INK! (Investing In Kids), which is the only direct support organization of the St. Johns County School District.

 

“Local schools benefit immeasurably from INK! and its programs like Take Stock in Children, which helps kids overcome difficult odds and pave the way to college,” said Sherry Davidson, President of Davidson Realty and INK! Board Member.

 

What is Take Stock in Children?

TSIC is a nonprofit organization working throughout Florida to provide opportunities for a post-secondary education in an effort to break the cycle of poverty for low-income, academically qualified students.
