As the 2017-2018 school year comes to a close, I must acknowledge our dedicated school-based staff – our counselors, educators, psychologists, speech, occupational and physical therapists, administrators, and support staff, whose passion and compassion has once again proven exceptional in the 200 plus schools we support throughout the year. Thank you for your dedication to your children and their families.
The school year may be winding down, but things at CORA are heating up! On Monday, June 25, 2018, CORA will host the 10th Annual GOLF for KIDS Classic at Philmont Country Club. CORA’s fiscal year ends in June, so we’ll be working on our last efforts to meet our fiscal year 2018 financial goals.
We’re continuing to push out the 2018 Northeast Philadelphia Community Needs Survey and I ask that if you haven’t done so already, please take 10 minutes to complete this online assessment. As CORA plans our future services, we need your input to ensure they take shape with wisdom and priority.
I want to make you aware of an outstanding partnership that arose from a strong expression of need from the Philadelphia community. Over the course of the past two years, CORA has monetarily and programmatically supported the first and only Recovery High School in the State of Pennsylvania, The Bridge Way School. Like CORA, The Bridge Way School’s philosophy is to provide students with a place of support and refuge, allowing them to remain with their families and in their communities. This is an excellent resource for families struggling to fight addiction and CORA is proud to support students on the road to recovery.
I hope you will enjoy this issue of the CORA Connection! Especially the article, written by one of our talented educators, Susan Robinson, that provides tips for parents on how to help their kids enjoy summer without too much screen time. Thanks so much for all you do to strengthen CORA’s reach and reputation. Have a wonderful summer!
AnnMarie Schultz, CEO, CORA Services
