This school year has already been one of the most exciting in the history of The Landing and After the Bell. We are seeing many more faces (almost double from last year!) and providing many more enrichment opportunities for youth than ever before. Of course, this is not something we do alone; the support of our community makes all the difference. The next few blog posts on our site will highlight some of our partners. In this first post, we give thanks for our Crook County schools.
We could never have successful after-school programs without partnership from the Crook County schools. Crooked River Elementary has been home to After the Bell since the beginning of the program in 2011. This partnership has allowed us to bring additional learning opportunities, particularly in the areas of science and reading, to the children of Crook County. Even in this year’s tricky transition between school buildings the administration made sure we didn’t get left behind!
Also, both Crook County Middle School and Crook County High School have helped The Landing become a warm, safe, and enriching place for students. The schools regularly refer students to us, knowing we have a shared goal to see our youth becoming thriving and contributing members of society. This year we have added a number of local teachers on our board of directors; their leadership is one of the key factors that have helped us have one of our most successful years yet!
Thank you, Crook County schools, for your role in developing the youth of our community!
