As we approach the holidays, a message from City Connects Executive Director, Mary Walsh:
On behalf of the City Connects team, I extend greetings of the season and warmest wishes for the holidays! 2011 has been a year full of exciting progress for City Connects; we expanded in Springfield, MA, were named a Priority Partner for turnaround schools through Massachusetts’ Race to the Top grant, and continued to see significant positive results demonstrating the effectiveness of our work.
As the year draws to a close, we reflect with gratitude on the enduring support of our partners in schools and in the community. Together, we are addressing the non-academic challenges facing students to ensure that all children come to school ready to learn and thrive.
Thank you, and we look forward to another wonderful and productive year ahead in 2012!
We’ll be back January 3, 2012. Season’s greetings!
