Happy New Year! As students, staff and families return for Quarter 3, there is so much to be grateful for in 2024, and at the top of the list is the spirit of joy across our community. Enlace closed out last year with JOYcember, a month filled with opportunities for staff, students and families to build relationships and celebrate everything that has been accomplished in the first semester.
To highlight a few of these accomplishments:
- Enlace Academy was awarded over $3.7 million in grant funds over the next three years to support the academic and social-emotional well-being and success of the school community
- Enlace students enjoyed over 15 different sports and afterschool programs, including the addition of Girls on the Run and Camptown Indy this fall
- Enlace’s annual Holiday Assistance Program and new food pantry provided gifts, food, and important resources to over 200 families this fall, representing over 80 sponsors and donors.
- 90% of Enlace Academy families attended fall report card conferences, and over 94% of students were present for school each day.
- Over 50 Enlace students received 1:1 tutoring through Ignite! Reading and Bilingual Bridges.
- Enlace expanded its support of multilingual families to include 60 home literacy visits this fall along with weekly Saturday and weeknight English classes, serving more than 50 families.
- Over 80% of students met their foundational literacy growth goals, and an additional 8% of students are projected to pass ILearn as a result of the work of teachers, staff and students.
There is so much to celebrate and look forward to in 2024, and none of this would be possible without the incredible passion and hard work of Enlace’s teachers, leaders, and staff or the ongoing love and support of our students, families, and partners. We thank you for being an important part of Enlace Academy’s community and are grateful for your partnership and advocacy.
