Our 2020-21 Campaign launches soon!
STANBRIDGE ACADEMY'S 2020–2021 ANNUAL FUND CAMPAIGN WILL LAUNCH IN OCTOBER—STAY TUNED!
The photo above was taken at the start of the 2019-2020 school year...and we hope to have an opportunity later this year to pose for an updated all-school photo. COVID restrictions make that impossible right now, but school is back in session (and we do have a small cohort of students and teachers safely back on campus for in-person instruction). When we dismissed classes from campus on Friday, March 13, it’s fair to say that no one anticipated we would not return again for the remainder of the school year. Nonetheless, preparing in advance for a potentially extended school closure allowed us to ensure both students and teachers were equipped to handle distance-learning from home. Thanks to lessons learned throughout the spring and summer, our teachers and support staff were prepared to deliver academic instruction and social-emotional support to our students either in-person or online as circumstances dictate throughout this truly unique school year.
There have been many examples of the creativity, ingenuity, and inspiration of Stanbridge's distance-learning on our website's student blog, YouTube channel, and social media feeds. What you won't see, however, is the profound ripple effect that the COVID closure has had on many within our community. A number of Stanbridge families have been severely impacted by the economic fallout from the pandemic, experienced job loss, or have had their health and living situations significantly compromised. The need for financial aid this year is greater than ever, and some of our families have a real fear that they will no longer be able to access the Stanbridge program for their children. With so many school districts struggling throughout the current climate to meet the needs of their special needs students, Stanbridge has been a consistent source of strength and a beacon of hope for families with LD kids.
We are currently preparing to launch our 2020-2021 Annual Fund Campaign, a critical component to ensure we can continue to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of students most at-risk of falling behind during extended distance-learning. This year, more than ever, a gift to our Annual Fund will give hope to the Stanbridge families who are struggling most in getting through these incredibly difficult times. No family should feel hopeless. The Stanbridge community has shown, time and again, that we are at our best when we rally together and rise to the challenge. Though physically apart, we are still a community together, and together we remain #StanbridgeStrong.
