As a Community School, Whitney Point works to build partnerships with families and community organizations in a collaborative effort to support each child's learning and development.
What is a Community School?
A Community School is a partnership among community stakeholders, parents, and schools focused on supporting student development, improving student outcomes, supporting families, and developing strong communities. When schools, families, and communities work together, every component of this partnership can be strengthened and engaged.
Raising Eagles Summer STEAM Event
Our community Schools program held a STEAM camp yesterday at Dorchester Park for members of our Raising Eagles program. They partnered with Binghamton University's Physics Department, which provided STEAM kits. The department's PhD students even built the kits with the kids! Thank you to all who made this a fun, enriching afternoon for our Raising Eagles members.
