Aldrin Elementary and Giant of North Point announced their business partnership with a school assembly, on March 6, 2014. This is the first official school partnership for Giant. Aldrin's 5th and 6th grade chorus performed a special song and Kindergartners created a video highlighting their recent field trip to Giant. The video showed how they integrated the school curriculum into their own virtual Giant Market.
The audience and speakers included Fairfax County Public leaders including Dr. Karen Garza, local government officials, Aldrin school administrators, the Reston Rotary Club, Giant and PTA representatives.
As part of the partnership, Giant is providing volunteers to work with students, money for the Weekend Food Programs and educational field trips. Aldrin will support Giant by supplying student artwork for store display, communicating the partnership throughout the community and inviting Giant staff members to Aldrin school events. This partnership will provide both Giant and Aldrin with an investment in the future of our community and our children.
