The Newark Trust for Education is committed to hearing and lifting the voices of all community members on issues impacting the conditions for learning of the young people in Newark. To understand your thoughts, questions, and concerns about starting school in September, we are currently hosting an online conversation on ThoughtExchange. The views of ALL community members – with or without school-aged children – are essential to this discussion.
Led by the National Summer Learning Association (NSLA), National Summer Learning Week is a week-long celebration dedicated to elevating the importance of keeping kids learning, safe, and healthy every summer, ensuring they return to school in the fall ready to succeed. Themes for the week are: Dive into a Book Adventure, Discover STEM and Soar, Arts, Eat Healthy and Grow Strong to Win at Wellness, Celebrate the Future Leaders of Tomorrow and Make a Masterpiece. In celebration of National Summer Learning Week, this week's resources focus on local summer learning options. Find additional summer resources by clicking here.
Welcome to summer! As we celebrate the graduates of 2020, parents and families also scramble to find summer resources and activities for children of school age. This week's newsletter features articles celebrating recent graduates, resources for summer learning, and more.
Newark Trust for Education is also pleased to continue our partnership with Newark Arts Education Roundtable, Newark Thrives! and Schools That Can to administer the Victoria Foundation Public School Grants Program. Congratulations to recipients of the Social Emotional Learning grant for the 2020-2021 school year as part of the Victoria Collaborative.
