We are still committed to reforming existing norms/systems in the district and in Ardsley and are working with the district to improve.
We continue to fight for every child’s right to access educational resources and activities.
We have achieved our goals this year thanks to a strong partnership built with our liaisons in CRS and AMS. We thank our amazing liaisons for working with us on the ground to identify needs and award scholarships to deserving students with warmth, 100% confidentiality, precision, and professionalism.
We use our influence to catalyze long term change by collaborating and forming impactful plans with our superintendent and the district’s leadership, with the ALL, and with the PTA.
None of our achievements would be possible without our supporters. We are very grateful to all of you who have joined us last year or this year and have stayed with us during these unprecedented times.
