COVID-19 Newsletter, Volume 4


A Message from C4K

Dear C4K Family,

While it is anything but normal, the completion of the school’s Spring Break and start of regular online learning activities offers an opportunity for members to settle into some new routines. C4K is here with regularly scheduled Virtual Meet-ups and e-Mentoring so members can continue to connect with the program and their mentors. Check out the announcements below for additional details.

This is will be a challenging couple of months but we want to encourage members to stay engaged in their learning. Whether it is for grade and credit or not, the activities and content provided by the schools through the end of the school year will be important preparation for next year. Additionally, learning on one’s own in a less structured environment is a skill that can pay dividends for a lifetime. If there are any concerns or struggles, C4K can help either through matching with a mentor for individual support or connecting with the schools to gather additional answers and resources.

We miss you!  Stay safe and in touch.

Sincerely,
Kala, Tricia, Jill, and Colin
