As a mom to a four-year-old girl, I’ve watched Disney’s Frozen 2 more times than I care to admit. I know every word to every song like I know my own name--which is Laura Caruso, the new Director of Development for Pure Initiative. While thinking about this school year and the uncertainty therein, a particular song keeps coming into my mind...Into the Unknown.
This year we find ourselves walking Into the Unknown. Sandy, our Communications Coordinator for the past 8 years is moving on to a new job opportunity. I joined the Pure Initiative team in February--weeks before the unprecedented COVID-19 shutdown. Now each time we think about the upcoming school year, we seem to come up with more questions than answers.
When will classes start again? Will classes start again? Will this be in-person learning? Will it be virtual or E-Learning? Will our volunteers be allowed into the school buildings? Is it safe to go into the school buildings?
Of course we cannot answer these questions, but we can prepare for the contingencies.
We CAN prepare for back to school as usual.
We CAN ensure that we are ready with relevant medically accurate information.
We CAN move forward with our E-Learning platform to be utilized should transition learning be interrupted this year.
We CAN work to bring our programming to students in small groups, homeschool groups and youth groups.
This is what we have been working on during our COVID-19 Quarantine time. We are excited to see what this school year will bring. We are excited to meet the challenges that the 2020-2021 School Year will bring. But there is one thing we can’t do.
We CAN’T do this without your help. We need your financial support now more than ever.
Please consider a monthly or annual partnership with Pure Initiative. Help us as we travel Into the Unknown. Just $15/month sponsors one student per month for the 2020-2021 Academic Year.
