Empower Generations

Hello, Empower Generations / Innovation Studios families!
 
It has been wonderful seeing so many familiar faces and so many new faces on ZOOM this week. The whole staff has enjoyed reconnecting and getting to know our new learners.
 
We kicked off the week with some team-building and getting to know each other games and activities. 
 
Next week we will continue setting a foundation of comfortability and understanding of Google Classroom, Zoom, schedules and projects. 
 
We know distance learning is new and different for not only our families but also our staff. Please reach out to any one of us if you need support or have questions. 
 
If anyone is in need of school supplies, we have some available on campus. Also, Ms. Danielle still has computer devices available. 
 
Have a great week!
 
Malaka Donovan
School Director
