We wanted to share with you some stories of the success we’ve had this summer using ARTS education as a focus for learning. Especially those of you who have supported us financially.
As we have said before, the most dangerous slides are not at playgrounds or water parks. The most perilous slides are those experienced when inner city youth lose almost two months of learning over the summer break.
Literacy was a part of every day, with our STOP, DROP and READ time…where everyone, even the adults, took a quiet break to do some independent reading.
And of course, volunteers & tutors ended their afternoons teaching our kids about God, and about their worth. For kids that have been struggling in school, and face challenges we may not be able to imagine, the message that God loves them is valuable indeed.
