It’s a strange time as we all navigate new ways to work and live. But our phenomenal staff members are doing great work adapting our programming, and staying connected to our wonderful students and their families.

The ECOS Outdoor Nature Exploration program is on-hold, and will resume as soon as the social distancing order is lifted. We have new pro-bono radio ads and billboards we’re excited to debut! In the meantime we’re sending environmental activity ideas out to our families and posting them on social media.

Tamika is redesigning Excelerate lesson plans into a virtual platform, and our on-line program begins next week. Students will have deliverables from each class, and will still receive their stipends for their participation and completion of assignments. Elaine has recruited virtual volunteers who will be reviewing student resumes.

And we’re excited for the expansion of our Midtown classroom space, and we’ll be working soon to begin building out and furnishing our new space.

Be safe, stay well, and stay connected.
