I hope you are enjoying this beautiful fall weather on this Friday afternoon. The beginning of the school year is one of our favorite times here at the Upper Room. Students are back in school, learning and engaged. The Upper Room After School Program is moving along at 2 partner schools and 1 partner church in the community, serving about 150 students. Raising A Reader is kicking off for the school year, focusing on parents with young learners and working to establish a regular reading routine at home with their children. Fitness classes and programs at the Mary Kelly Center are back up and running for the year. The Adult Education program began a new session in September, and our Eddie Baker School of Music private lessons are back up and running after the summer break.
We all get busy during this time of year, but one of the best ways to follow along with everything that is going on around the Upper Room is to follow us on social media or sign up to receive our monthly e-newsletter! Click the icons below to find our social media pages, and if you are interested in that e-newsletter, please fill out the form on the right side of the page. If you’re already following along, share our page with a friend! We love making new friends.
We’ll update this blog every so often as well, so feel free to follow along here! Next week, we’ll begin by featuring a member of our staff so you can get to know us a little better too.
