This week we are proud to share the culmination of our second half of the “getting to know you” and “building Intentional communities” activity piece. Throughout the school year, some students move in and out of the after school program, so twice a year, Higher Ground focuses on building relationships and intentional communities amongst students and staff, so that we are all familiar with one another. We also have a few new staff members, and a new track coach. So, the activities we do with the student are very important.

MLK Community Service Day
Monday January 16th, 2017
Our annual community service cleanup day is Monday, January 16th, from 8AM until 2PM. All participants and staff will be meeting at MPA upper campus, and convening on 105th and Edes at 1PM for lunch.
Youth workers are a big part of the Higher Ground organization. They provide peer to peer interaction, as well as support the tutors with their classes, making transitions and day to day tasks easier. We would like to recognize KaShawnna C. for being an excellent youth worker. KaShawnna is very efficient in her tasks and works extremely well with both students and staff.
We want to acknowledge all of MPA’s Community All Starz players. Our basketball season is set to begin January 21st, and we look forward to the challenges and sportsmanship.
If you are a parent and wish to volunteer in program, please come see us.

Ms. Taylor S.
We would like to recognize Ms. Taylor for doing an outstanding job as a tutor, as well as taking over extra administration jobs during her indirect service time. Ms. Taylor is a great asset to our program because she works hard to master whatever tasks she is given and does so with a positive attitude each time! Thank you for all that you do Ms. Taylor!
Congrats to you!
Shout out Coach Dre, our newest staff member. He is an awesome addition to our team. He is our new basketball coach. The students have already taken a liking to him, and we are excited to start the basketball season off with him.
