Park honored by Child First Authority


Park School was honored by Child First Authority at their annual event on May 22. Child First Authority’s mission is to develop youth by strengthening and reforming schools. Child First Authority is committed to closing the opportunity gap for children in Baltimore City by providing high quality after school and in-school programs. With its focus on school-based community organizing and enriching learning opportunities,Child First Authority supports positive outcomes for over 1500 young Baltimoreans. Carol Recking, their Executive Director, had these kind words to say “For the past two years, Traci Wright and Park School have given tremendous support to Child First Authority and our partner Westside Elementary School. In particular, Ms.Wright has helped to develop amazing opportunities for Park students and staff to engage with Child First and Westside…We were all deeply moved by the outpouring of support and contributions that your students, their families and your staff gave to support the Thanksgiving food drive at Westside. Now the students at Westside are enjoying weekly STEM enrichment while their parents have weekly GED classes with (Park) teachers, who took additional professional development to be able to offer the courses.” Park students, faculty and parents feel equally enriched by the partnership, and look forward to our continued relationship with Child First and Westside Elementary.
