Today we are celebrating Lights on Afterschool. It's a time to appreciate and celebrate the importance of afterschool programming. We know afterschool programs "inspire learning, keep kids safe and help working families." That's why we are a partner of Pittsburgh Public Schools, an APOST Quality Campaign Member and a partner of FitUnited. We are doing what we can to help improve the lives of the students and families involved in our programs, because we know our most important partners are those students and families.
At the Brashear Association, we are celebrating by saying "Thank You".
We didn't have our regularly scheduled program today because Pittsburgh
Public Schools had a half-day. So, we spent our time making individual thank you cards that our students will receive next week.
I am so lucky to work with a team of people who are willing to take the time to personally appreciate our students!
