The students of the Guadalupe Center’s After-school program will return to Marco Island for the annual Buddy Day event on Wednesday, February 26th, 2014. This year, nearly 180 second grade students from Pinecrest, Lake Trafford, Highlands, and Village Oaks Elementary Schools, who have been working diligently to improve their grades in the After-school program, will travel from Immokalee to Marco Island for a day of fun at Hideaway Beach. For many of the students, this will be their first trip out of Immokalee, and for most, their first experience at the Gulf of Mexico.
Each “Little Buddy” will be paired up with an adult “Big Buddy” with whom they will participate in a number of fun educational activities throughout the day. For more information on Buddy Day or the Guadalupe Center, visit www.guadalupecenter.org.
