From the desk of Dr. Catherine Cushinberry
Recently, I attended a parent open house at Brownsville Road Elementary. It was an event hosted by the team of our AmeriCorps members serving at the school. The purpose was to create a space where parents could learn more about City Year and meet the young people who have been mentoring and tutoring their children.
Memphis Scholars Caldwell Guthrie School Spotlight
The New Year is off to a stellar start at Memphis Scholars Caldwell Guthrie Elementary School. January has brought brisk winds, cooler mornings, and the occasional stray dog wandering onto campus during power greeting but that has not hindered the hugs, high fives, and “Did you do your homework” questioning given to every student that walks into the building every day. Enthusiasm abounds on the MSCG team and you already know we wouldn’t have it any other way!
Humes Preparatory Middle School Spotlight
December is here and it seems as though November flew by! Our break has come to an end and the Humes team is thankful for the privilege of being the first team to serve the Humes Preparatory Middle School community. We are excited to return to school and end quarter two with a bang! It’s feels like just yesterday this founding partnership was planting the seeds to what is now sprouting into a great school year. What has been key to our success has been the embodiment of the HMS core values.
