Welcome to our first monthly newsletter! In this issue you’ll find a year-end recap of the students we’ve served, an update on IDEA, which will open this fall, and a highlight of one of SOTA’s 2006 Alums. Please feel free to share this with your friends, and be sure to check out our new website www.elementsofed.org for the latest info on what we’re doing.
It's been a great year for Elements of Education. The "completer class" from SAMI graduated (the class that were freshmen when the first class were seniors), SOTA celebrated it's 13th graduation, the Next Move placed interns from ALL Tacoma Public High Schools, and we have 126 excited freshmen who are excited to create our newest school, IDEA.
We are so thankful to have a wide network of community partners, parents, students, and alumni that donate time and money to support Elements of Education Partners, our partner schools (SOTA, SAMI, IDEA), and programs (Next Move, Adjunct Instructors, BRIDGE, Xplore). We believe all students have the right to a high-quality education – thank you for partnering with us to make that dream a reality.
Thank you for all your support,
Elizabeth Hirschl ’06 SOTA
