Education stations revealed, balloons released for Cara


Family, friends, and classmates release balloons to honor the late Carolina “Cara” Meyer, of Botkins, daughter of Josh and Jessica Meyer. Cara, 5, had Epilepsy and passed away last March. Her kindergarten class at the time took up a collection of money to do something for the Meyer family. On Wednesday, May 18, 2016, the now first-grade class, gathered to share with the Meyer family what they (tried) to use the money for. Kindergarten Teacher Ashlee Zimpfer, along with some colleagues and friends, came up with the idea for a learning trail and dedicating it to Cara. They got the paint, concrete, signs, and designs all donated from various members of the community, and the blessing of the Botkins Board of Education. Zimpfer said volunteers came together to create a great way to remember Cara. The Botkins Early Education Stations (B.E.E.S.) in Memory of Cara Meyer is located behind the playground at Botkins Local School. It’s goal is to let early learners practice letter, shape and number skills outside. It’s truly outstanding how far our money has traveled, Zimpfer said. The money they still have to spend will be put towards another purple Cara bench out on the playground. Purple is the color for Epilepsy Awareness. The balloons released Wednesday were Cara’s favorite colors, purple, pink, and blue. Visit sidneydailynews.com to see more photos from the balloon launch and what the education stations look like.
