Family and Community Engagement Spotlight: Newburgh

We featured this FCEP spotlight in our February 2018 newsletter

As part of the Newburgh Free Academy West Campus  (NFA West) mentoring program, student mentors visited Balmville Elementary School to offer advice and read stories to the younger students. While reading, the mentors asked questions of the younger scholars that inspired critical thinking. The mentors also shared their experiences transitioning to middle and high school, offering advice to their mentees to help them navigate the challenges ahead and guide them toward success.
