WHEN YOU OPEN BOOKS, YOU OPEN DOORS
This school year, the COVID-19 crisis has disrupted vital academic instruction for FSP scholars who represent children from vulnerable communities.
For summer 2020, FSP has developed a program to ensure that much needed educational and basic resources will go directly to families. The FSP 2020 R.E.S.P.O.N.S.E. (Reading and Enrichment for Scholars Plus Other Needed Supplies and Essentials) Program will occur via pop-up sites at multiple locations this summer and be supplemented by a virtual component. FSP R.E.S.P.O.N.S.E. will include music, participation stations with reading, math and enrichment activities, and take-home resources for children and their families.
Through the FSP 2020 R.E.S.P.O.N.S.E. (Reading and Enrichment for Scholars Plus Other Needed Supplies and Essentials) Program, reading is in the first part of our name.
With our literacy program, personal libraries are built and dedicated read times are established. We strive to ignite a passion for reading and inspire a love of learning for scholars.
Children build social and emotional skills by participating in enrichment activities that promote resilience, conflict resolution and self-control. Research shows these skills are vital to success.
Enrichment activities at FSP R.E.S.P.O.N.S.E include STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) activities, arts and crafts, yoga, chess and more. Scholars will also be given take home resources to further their enrichment learning at home.
