From young 5s, kindergarten, and 1st grade, the Lakeshore HBA was enjoying the time shared by the teachers and their fun-filled classrooms. Billy the HBA Builder Bear visited seven classrooms in New Groningen Elementary (ZPS: Learning For Life) With plans to visit Grand Haven and West Ottawa later this week!
Lakeshore HBA CEO, Brittany Ryzenga, read the book, "Billy the Builder Bear Builds a House" to the students, teaching them about the process of building a home and the different skilled trades involved.
Billy and the HBA staff gifted the students with the book, along with an official "Builder Certificate".
HBA members asked students if they knew what insulation was, one 1st grader said, "I can Google it?" Also asked was “What do you want to be when you grow up” one responded with "a YouTuber!" It’s funny what kids come up with! A morning of laughs, reading, and construction- that's a great start to the week.
Supporting the mission of Cultivating, Educating, and Recruiting the workforce of today and tomorrow. Our children are our future, and Billy the Builder Bear was a great way to invite them to learn about our trade in the construction industry!
