AWARD — Every Person Influences Children will be presenting an award to Charles A. Lindbergh Elementary School at the school’s PTA meeting tonight. The meeting will be held at the school, on the second floor in the library, at 184 Irving Terrace.

The award is to acknowledge and thank the school, the PTA and the students for collecting winter clothing items, such as hats, mittens and scarves, every holiday season for more than 10 years. These items were collected and distributed to close to 1,000 parents and children that EPIC serves through its various family support programs.

EPIC started providing programming at Lindbergh — as well as other Ken-Ton schools — in 2000 when Linda Croglia was principal. EPIC conducted its Parents as Advocates workshops, which is training that develops the skills of parents to help their children succeed academically; to build individual relationships with the child and teacher; to create a supportive home environment; and to understand school systems, academic standards, assessments and college/career readiness expectations.

Through this partnership, the PTA began its “Giving Tree” warm weather clothing drive to help the families that EPIC serves. For more information about EPIC and its programs, visit www.epicforchildren.org.
