Dear Afya Families,

Today is an exciting day for us. We are sending off our 8th graders as they matriculate into high school. These things are bitter sweet. We wish them all the best in their future and look forward to hearing from them as they return to see us.

The Friends of Herring Run Park and The Go Hard Club are teaming up to operate a rest stop in our neighborhood for Sunday's Tour Dem Parks Hon! The event will showcase Baltimore's diverse neighborhoods and parks while promoting physical fitness and urban cycling.  We will work with our community partners from 9:30 a.m. -12:45 p.m. to provide water, greet participants, and promote safe travels through Herring Run Park.  We are meeting at the Movie Shed next to Belair Road in the park.  If you would like to help or support, feel free to come through. – Coach Johnson.

Exciting news!  Afya Public Charter School is going paperless!  This summer we will begin using Classroom Parent, an electronic communication system to send important information to families. This tool will allow us to get information to you in real time. Please be on the lookout for an email with registration information. If we do not have your email on file, please call the office to provide that information and for instructions on how to sign up for this important service.

This week, I’d like to celebrate Ms. Maliaka Lesesne. Ms. Lesesne teaches 7th and 8th grade physical education and health and serves as the 8th grade team lead. Ms. Lesesne joined us with our first class of 8th graders. She is an integral part of our program at Afya. Her relationships with scholars and families is a model for connections between school and home. Many scholars have returned to Afya to speak at the school or at the 8th grade closing because Ms. Lesesne has maintained a connection with them. She is a consummate traveler who chaperoned our scholars on their trip to Panama this spring. For this and many other reasons, I salute Ms. Lesesne.

Be well,
