Our First Day of After-School Programming Was a Success!

After-School Programs – Day 1, Check!

Yesterday we successfully kicked off EHTP’s after-school programs as new and returning scholars filled the halls of our classrooms excited and ready to learn!

Elementary scholars chanted “If we succeed, I succeed” during their afternoon round-up, middle schoolers showed off their Core Value ‘Courage’ during fun ice breaker activities, and our high school students worked on their college applications throughout the evening.

We’re off to a great start and looking forward to the year ahead.
Come visit and see for yourself!

Welcome Back East Harlem Scholars!

Today, the halls of East Harlem Scholars Academies are filled with laughter and excitement as new and returning scholars meet their teachers and classmates on their first week of school. With warm greetings at the front door, proud parents observing morning meetings, and scholars already eagerly participating in lessons, the school year is off to a great start!

This year, Scholars Academies added four elementary classrooms and for the first time, 2 Pre-K classrooms! We plan on adding a grade level every year, eventually serving grades Pre-K-12. Make sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to keep up with our progress!

EHTP High School Students Close Out Summer With a Visit to Blackstone

Our EHTP High School students were invited to celebrate their many successes of summer program at the Blackstone offices in Midtown Manhattan, one of the leading investment and advisory firms in the world.

Scholars kicked off the morning with presentations from EHTP’s Executive Director Jeff Ginsburg and Joan Solotar, EHTP’s Board Chair and Blackstone’s Senior Managing Director and Head of Multi-Asset Investing. Blackstone’s Senior Managing Director and Co-head of Strategic Partners, Vern S. Perry once again inspired our students with his own story and advice for the future.

Each presenter discussed the value of goal setting, maintaining focus, and having confidence — all critical tools as our high school scholars prepare for college.

We wrapped up the morning with powerful student presentations ranging from learning how to code to the importance of deconstructing gender roles to working to end street harassment. It was clear how much the students grew and how passionately they felt about their projects.

Many thanks to Blackstone for providing students with the opportunity to mark the end of an ambitious and successful summer program at EHTP!

EHTP Scholars Beat the Summer Heat at Field Day

On Monday, August 3rd our EHTP scholars celebrated the end of summer program with an afternoon full of face-painting, hula-hooping, potato sack racing, and more (given that it’s summer in NYC, we couldn’t help but cool off with a refreshing run through the JREC sprinkler system too)!

While it saddens us to see summer program come to a close, we look forward to all the amazing EHTP scholars and events next year will bring.

Browse the gallery below to view all the exciting field day activities our scholars participated in:
