Today marks the last day of public school here in East Hartford. On my drive in to the office today, I was thinking back over the past year about our school age programs, and if we met the goals we set out in our CEO’s iconic vision. We were the caring adults during Y Days when some children didn’t have the luxury of spending a week at home with mom and dad at the holidays. We were the pioneers of collaboration within our community and formed close bonds with the elementary schools that house our school age programs. We spent the year actively engaging the children in our program, encouraging physical activity and offering nutritious snacks each day.
I believe we were highly successful in meeting the standards our Assocation has set forth in front of us, and I believe we will continue to strengthen our community and the children we serve. We will now move our goals to the Camp Nowashe setting and spend the summer inspiring greatness in our youth.
