Family & Community Engagement Summer Newsletter

Dear Community Members,

As we wrap up another enriching school year, we are thrilled to share some wonderful moments that have brought us together as a community.

First, we want to extend our heartfelt congratulations to the group of dedicated moms who successfully completed the 10-week course with Project 2 Inspire. Throughout this journey, they explored essential topics such as effective collaboration with schools, leveraging technology for educational benefits, and gaining resources to support their students' social-emotional development. To celebrate their achievements, we hosted an awards ceremony where each participant received well-deserved certificates. The evening culminated in a delightful potluck dinner, filled with laughter and joy as families gathered to honor and support these incredible moms.

In addition to this inspiring milestone, we are thrilled to announce the success of our inaugural computer literacy class sponsored by Prosperity Labs. Participants learned fundamental computer skills, empowering them with essential knowledge for today's digital world. We were delighted to present 18 graduates with free computers, generously provided by our sponsor. The celebration continued with a certificate presentation and a lively potluck ceremony, where families came together to share in the pride of our graduates.

During the month of July, we are excited to offer our most popular classes: Spanish as a Second Language (Wednesdays, 6:00-7:00 p.m.) and English as a Second Language (Wednesdays, 7:10-8:10 p.m.). These classes continue to be a valuable resource for our community, fostering cultural understanding and language proficiency.  Here is a link to our flier.

As we embark on the summer break, we extend our warmest wishes to all our families for a safe and joyful season. Stay tuned for more updates and opportunities to engage with our vibrant community.

Warm regards,

Corina Sapien
Family & Community Engagement Center
