Over the course of two days, these remarkable individuals poured their hearts and souls into cleaning, decorating, and organizing Steve's classroom and the beloved Cougar Closet. The result? A cozy, personalized, and social environment that radiates positivity and inclusivity.
The Cougar Closet is a shining example of the Community School Pillar's integrated student support system. It offers a wide array of new and fashionable clothing, nourishing food, name-brand school supplies, and personal care products for all students. This resource plays a pivotal role in ensuring that no child faces barriers to learning due to unmet basic needs.
After two clean up shifts - spanning over two days the Women united and Highland Cirlce affinity groups bid Steve good luck as he prepared for the first Community Night featuring Homework Diner of the Fall 2023 semester. The grand moment arrived as the Cougar Closet had its ribbon-cutting ceremony. The atmosphere was electric, thanks in part to the efforts of AMS staff.
