Start of a Successful School Year
In anticipation of a profoundly different school year, CHAI began convening principals from the 10 public schools it serves, to give the principals an opportunity to exchange ideas and resources. CHAI also has been working with individual principals to identify and address the needs of their schools, families, and students, linking schools to partnerships to meet those needs. When one of the principals expressed the need for more support for Spanish-speaking students entering kindergarten, CHAI connected the school to CASA de Maryland. In addition, with donations from Supplies for Success and our Amazon School Supply Drive, CHAI was able to distribute supplies for over 1,000 pre-k through 2nd-grade students. CHAI is proud to partner with neighborhood schools to help support students through a challenging year.
