INDIAN RIVER COUNTY - Make a huge splash with the Youth Guidance youngsters at the good grades pool party on Aug. 11 from 5:30-8 p.m. at the Gifford Aquatic Center, 4895 43rd Ave. in Vero Beach.
This annual event brings together volunteers, teens and children to recognize and reward those enrolled in Youth Guidance for their good and/or improved grades.
The party is a great incentive so the children will strive to do their best in school all year long. Youth will be given accolades for their good (straight As or A/B honor roll) and/or improved academics, conduct and attendance.
The students with the greatest improvements and straight As will also receive other honors including a luncheon sponsored by the Exchange Club of Vero Beach.
In addition, Youth Guidance is holding its polo shirt drive and children will be able to pick up their shirts at the pool party.
In order to help every child start school with a new shirt, Youth Guidance has a shirt drive each year. Polos are accepted until Aug. 9 at the Youth Guidance office, 1028 20th Place, Vero Beach. Office hours are Monday-Thursday, 9 .m. -5 p.m. and Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m..
Every size (children and adult) is needed. Donations of navy blue or white, long- or short-sleeved collared shirts for kids in grades K-12, preferably new and without a logo or emblem, would be appreciated.
Donations of gift cards or funds will also be accepted to purchase additional polos for the children in Youth Guidance.
