FROM THE DIRECTORS
SUMMER IS DEFINITELY HERE- EVERYTHING IS BLOOMING, THE WEATHER IS WARMING, AND THE
BEACHES ARE CALL ING! IT IS A PERFECT TIME OF YEAR TO REFLECT ON THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF THE
PAST YEAR AND TAKE SOME TIME FOR RELAXATION.
IT IS ALSO A TIME TO SHARE SOME WONDERFUL NEWS WITH EVERYONE! BECAUSE OF YOUR
DEDICATION, DILIGENCE, AND PROFESSIONALISM, THE FEDERAL REVIEW CAME BACK WITH ZERO
FINDINGS. THERE WERE MANY POSITIVE THINGS THAT THE REVIEWERS HIGHLIGHTED ABOUT OUR
PROGRAM. EACH ONE OF YOU SHOULD TAKE PRIDE IN THE DAILY WORK YOU DO FOR CHILDREN,
FAMILIES, AND COMMUNITY; THIS WAS HIGHLY RECOGNIZED BY THE REVIEWERS. THANK YOU FOR
UPHOLDING THE HEAD START STANDARDS OF QUAL ITY AND MAKING THIS PROCESS A SUCCESS.

Spring is around the corner, the days are longer and temperatures are
going in the right direction. Children are enjoying getting outside, playing
in the snow and getting fresh air. As John Muir said, “Spring work is going
on with joyful enthusiasm.”
Enthusiasm is evident in our Head Start classrooms and on home visits
with families. Children and families are learning and growing! Everyone is
hopeful to see COVID levels decreasing in our communities. We’ve worked
hard this year to remain open for services while keeping children, families
and staff safe..... Click here to read more!

A Note from the Directors
.This is our official newsletter of the school year. It’s been another whirlwind year with COVID-19 continuing to impact our service delivery. We are thankful for our dedicated and resilient staff that are willing to take this ride with us. We couldn’t do any of this without them. This summer we were able to provide summer school at many of our Head Start locations thanks to the stimulus funding. This additional programming provided children with rich educational opportunities, outdoor curriculum activities, and tons of fun! Keeping children, families and staff safe continues to be our priority as we navigate another COVID surge and variant. Many centers were able to upgrade facilities by replacing old HVAC systems, adding air conditioning, updating playgrounds, creating additional staff/child space, and other enhancements that will help keep our environments safe.

A Note from the Directors
A year ago, COVID-19 was declared a worldwide pandemic and forever changed our daily lives. This past year has put into perspective the resiliency of CESA 11
Head Start. There are many lessons to be learned from the statewide shutdown and slow reopening of our programs. Any challenge/problem can be handled when you have dedicated people willing to take it on, bounce back and
persevere........Click here to read more!
