SAVE THE DATE FOR OUR NEXT EVENT: FRIDAY, MARCH 26, 2021
On behalf of the staff and students, we would like to thank our generous event supporters, speakers, and volunteers for their commitment to this important event even though we were unable to meet this year. We are excited to continue bringing women and our young ladies together for a dedicated day of learning and personal development, and hope that on Friday, March 26, 2021 we can gather together again.
Cur attention is currently focused on our students and their families. As you know, Link is so much more than a school. In light of the impending health-related closure, Link has worked hard to ensure it continues to deliver a high quality educational program to our students. We learned so much since the spring of 2020 and from the Summer Academy experiences, that we are able to deliver an even stronger academic and enrichment program to our stduents in September 2020. We initiated a 2:1 ratio of chromebooks to student and distributed hot spots to familieis with poor internet connection to close the digital divide. We opened school with both hybrid (in school and remote) and all remote models in place, the former to especially accommodate parents who are essential workers and students with special needs. We continue to provide grab-and-go meals for our familiies. We prepared the facility for the safe return of the students selecting the hybrid model and for our staff coming in to school regularly. Our efforts are ever-evolving as we creatively approach meeting the needs of our scholars and their families and we are dedicating resources to emerging needs.
While our work here at Link is re-imagined, we ask for your help. Please consider a gift to help facilitate the necessary outreach Link is providing to its students and families during this crisis.
Thank you to our presenters for planning engaging workshops for our event.
