New Preschool for 21 chldren
During the last few months, COVID-19 precautions have meant no group childrens programs and Virtual Learning at home for students. CBCC got a grant from another sources to support in-person Virtual Learning tutoring so did not use these funds for that. Addtional Kindles were purchased to assist some students in getting online.
The Preschool construction project has been proceeding slowly, but surely, with funding from this grant and other funding sources. It is hoped that it can open in late January 2021, although that may be optimistic.
Donated Books have continued to be distributed at no cost to individuals and to the Little Libraries.
More effort has been undertaken, including hiring a Community Facilities Associate to focus full time on improving our facilities and trying to make use of the FEMA post-hurricane support funds that are only very slowly become available through the territorial government. This work is not funded under this grant -- but it is important to know that CBCC is continuing to work for children under a number of different program objectives. There is also work to get a playground set up here, but we are encountering difficulty in getting insurance to cover childrens programs or playgrounds.
Wishing everyone a better 2021 - with lots of real hugs and interactions - instead of our current Virtual Hugs. Big things will happen in the new year!
