PROGRAMS HIGHLIGHTS

SUMMER PROGRAMMING – ELEMENTARY HIGHLIGHT
Throughout the summer, students participated in various activities, two of which were art and photography. Our art students learned the skill set of utilizing canvases throughout drawing and painting. Our photography students, in collaboration with WE & Company, were able to learn the crafts of storytelling and photography. The Mix, WE & Company, and the owners of “The Pop Up Shop located at 354 N. Queen Street in Lancaster City were able to come together and put the student’s work on display for all to see.

PARENT ENGAGEMENT

It is that time when our students are heading back to school and as parents/guardians/loved ones, we send them back knowing that they have fears; fear of not making friends; fear of being bullied; fear of getting sick; fear of school shootings; fear of the unknown. Although we may have those ‘silent fears’ as well, it is our job to teach our children what it means to have courage.  

“One of the most powerful ingredients of success is courage. The backstory of nearly every success has unfortunate turns of events, rejections, and spectacular failures. There is also tremendous courage to keep going and find another way. Not to mention the courage to try in the first place” (Edwards, B., 3/2022).  

Please read this blog on “How to Encourage Courage in Your Kids” and try to utilize some of the tips the author gives as you prepare your children every morning and night to go to school and go out into this world.
