Chino Valley Child of the Week: Chad

Chad is an honor student and a skateboarder with the red hair and freckles of a boy-next-door, so the 12-year-old fits no stereotype. At school, he doesn’t list a favorite subject; he just matter-of-factly says he’s “good at all of it.” His mom says Chad has mentioned an interest in the FBI, mainly in the […]

Child of the Week– Christopher

Christopher loves the gleaming black bicycle he got for Christmas, especially since sunny weather returned to Prescott Valley. Riding it gives the 10-year-old a healthy break from fighting evil on Battleborn, his favorite Xbox One game.

Gage’s mom says he’s “all about any outdoor activity.” She also says “he needs a friend.” A Big Brother could be just that to this almost-seven-year-old bundle of energy.

Child of the Week: Nathan

Nathan says he likes to “play outside and climb things and run.” Of course, the swings and slide are great attractions for a nine-year-old boy, as well.  He plays basketball when he’s at the Boys and Girls Club, and it’s no surprise his favorite class at school is P.E. He studied Tae Kwan Do in […]

Child of the Week: Hailey

Hailey definitely is an 11-year-old who doesn’t need to follow the crowd. Case in point, when her dad recently nixed the idea of Halloween costumes as either Sans from the Undertale video game, or Freddie from the Nightmare on Elm Street movies, she concocted her own “Forsaken Soul” costume. “I was glad I changed my […]

He can play video games with his brother and online with friends, but a Big Brother could take him somewhere he can be active. Hunter […]

Child of the Week: Brandon

Saggy socks don’t impede 10-year-old Brandon as he dashes, shoes off, across the grassy field to nab a pass. He can kick, throw and catch a football for hours, his cheeks turning cherry red with the effort. He played on his school’s flag football team. But he says hockey really is his favorite sport. “I […]
