Ashoka Changemaker Schools Network

Hi Everyone,
Two pieces of great news. We were recently invited to join a national network known as Ashoka Changemakers. It was an exciting process of interviews, school tours, a written application, and phone conferences. All of these were fielded by a team of faculty and parents.

We learned earlier this week that we were accepted and we look forward to sharing more about this partnership once we kick off the new year.

After the initial application, members of the Ashoka team, Nancy, Illa, Henry, Jen, and Arnita met for three additional interviews. The last two were on Thursday, the day after school was out. Which is incredible…because they gave up their first day of summer to share their story and convey how important McAuliffe is in the lives of their families!!

We owe each of you a special thanks for your participation in the interviews! You truly spoke from your hearts and did a wonderful job representing our school and community.

Here’s a short video to share some of the things we will be working on together: http://startempathy.org/videos#video-645

I hope you are enjoying summer.
