January is usually a very cold, quiet month in the Washington, D.C, area, (I say “usually,” because lately we’ve had some crazy spring-like temperatures). But despite the quiet, January is the beginning of a new year, and in 2012 Beyond the Classroom is working hard to top the amazing posts we featured last year.
This month is going to be jam-packed. We recently re-launched our Site Coordinator Snapshot series, and can’t wait to share even more inspiring stories of the work Communities In Schools site coordinators are doing across the country to help kids succeed. We are also going to be live blogging from the National Mentoring Summit in Washington, D.C., posting photos from local Martin Luther King Day community service events with Communities In Schools students and alumni, and celebrating National Thank Your Mentor Day™.
In addition, keep an eye on the Communities In Schools national website. In the next few weeks we will be launching an innovative, interactive version of our model, which helps explain how we work in schools to meet each student’s individual needs.
Beyond the Classroom is really starting 2012 with a bang. We hope you share in the adventure with us!
