Happy Spring, APIE Supporters!
Spring marks one of my favorite times of the year as we enter the final nine weeks of the school year and see our students’ academic growth and self-confidence blossom.
Each year has its ups and downs, and this year is no exception; but what continues to amaze me is the strength, perseverance, and resilience of our students, staff, and community of volunteers. Showing up for students and helping them finish strong is what we’re about at APIE. Whether it’s offering encouragement, mentoring, or tutoring, we know that our programs make a difference in students’ lives.
I truly believe that our struggles help make us stronger. As we’ve adapted to the constraints and challenges of the pandemic, we’ve had the opportunity to rethink how we work with students and to refine the strengths of our organization.
Together we have weathered the storm and can see brighter days ahead. Together we have continued to show up for our students. And together, our possibilities are limitless.
