The teachers took a "field trip" to Conway's City of Hope Outreach Center to see firsthand what "COHO" provides for their students, and how they could better partner with this organization.
Ellen Smith's Instructional Facilitator Natalie Cunningham says the trip was very beneficial for everyone.
"The staff at COHO cares for our kids just as much as we do." says Cunningham. "I’m looking forward to working hand in hand with them this year in support of our Ellen Smith kiddos.”
The teachers discussed how COHO helps the students after school and the services they provide to the community, as well as what they need to do in order to get the students the after-school help that they need. They also discussed resources the school and the outreach center can share.
