HOPEBRIEFS | The One Thing I’d Give Each Student
If I could give each of our students one thing, I’d give them wonder — an insatiable curiosity, and awe of their Creator.
That’s one reason I’m particularly grateful for our four week summer school. Not only do we get to provide a structured environment, not only are students making critical gains in math and reading while their urban peers fall tragically behind — we also get to foster a love of learning that serves students well into the future.
“I love teaching summer school,” one teacher told me. “We are learning everyday with joy and freedom–just for the sake of learning! It always feels like this is what education is meant to be.”
Thank you for making these awe-inspiring moments possible for our students, well into the summer. A special thanks to our partners at Inverted Arts and the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation for their significant contributions to our summer program.
