CARE approves a grant for Ms Zurawski to bring in the Pint Size Polkas to Concord!
Uncle Mike, of the Pint Size Polkas, travels around the country putting on more than 160 Pint Size Polkas shows annually. He's performed in 15 states since 2008 at such venues as Summerfest in Milwaukee, WI; the Wisconsin State Fair in West Allis, WI; the Missouri State Fair in Sedalia, MO; the Live Oak Public Library System in Savannah, GA; and countless other public libraries, schools, fairs, and special events. During that time, Mike has also appeared on more than 25 major network TV affiliate newscasts on such stations as ABC 7 in Chicago; Channel 3 in Cleveland; and Today's TMJ4 in Milwaukee. Uncle Mike's goal is to educate through his music and various Pint Size Polkas program segments while providing an ample dose of family-friendly polka fun.
CARE Approves TWO Mini Grants for New Exercise Equipment at Cass Jr High
Oct. 5th, 2017
CARE proudly approved new exercise equipment for Mr. Pembroke today. He asked for 1 new treadmill and 15 new spin bikes!! Mr. Pembroke said in his request, "Having the right amount of equipment for the kids, helps the students take advantage of the short amount of time we have them each day. Them being able to experience the technology, while also learning about their heart rate in combination with getting exercise throughout the day is invaluable. The exercise they will get to break up their class schedule will help them in the classroom."
SO excited we are able to help Mr. Pembroke!
