Back to School Superhero Timyah Hall

Timyah Hall is going into kindergarten this year and she knows all about Igniting Good! Timyah traveled around Louisville, Kentucky, as part of Kindergarten Countdown, a program just for kids going into kindergarten! She visited so many fun places: the YMCA, the Louisville Zoo, the public library, the Frazier History Museum, the Science Center, the Derby Museum, and Louisville’s Slugger Field! She saw super performances by actors from Stage One Family Theatre and Walden Theatre. She got her Global Game Changers Passport to Your Heart stamped at each location. And she even got to meet the Mayor of Louisville!

Timyah traveled around all summer because she knows that it’s very important to be ready for kindergarten. It’s a big responsibility to go to school, and all of these super community partners were there to help, thanks to support from PNC Bank, Jefferson County Public Schools, and the City of Louisville.

We know that Timyah will pass on what the Global Game Changers curriculum teaches kids in school: that we all have a responsibility to Ignite Good!™  To learn more about our standards-compliant, compassion-based curriculum and how the Global Game Changers program gives Pre-K and elementary students a foundation for achievement in the classroom, click here.
