Our summer has been a busy one so far. Here’s a recap of what we’ve been up to this past week:
- We were happy to volunteer yesterday at McKinley Elementary School’s Summer Enrichment Celebration. APN helped at this lunch to celebrate teachers, volunteers, and children who participated in the school’s summer program for kids.
- Allentown Promise Neighborhood, PPL, and Central, Cleveland, and McKinley schools held a planning meeting last week to explore a collaborative after school program to enhance children’s learning in math, science, and the arts, as well as physical activity.
- Allentown Promise Neighborhood and Little School representatives handed out supply bags and information about our initiatives and programs, and enrollment in them, yesterday at Senator Pat Browne’s Community and Family Expo at Bucky Boyle Park.
- We attended the Central Elementary Community Partners Meeting yesterday to learn about upcoming school events and programs for the school year, as well as opportunities for community partnership.
And we held our first Open House event for the Allentown Promise Neighborhood at our office on Wednesday along with representatives from our partners Community Services for Children, St.Luke’s University Hospital Dental Van, and two neighborhood elementary schools. We even made it onto the WFMZ evening news broadcast! Watch us on this link:
