Congratulations Class of 2022!
Our stellar seniors have officially graduated from high school and the BLCI program! A beautiful and intimate ceremony was held at the Bali Hai Restaurant where our students, parents and supporters were able to gather to celebrate all the hard work our seniors have been putting into getting to college. We would like to thank our supporters for the lovely reception afterward where everyone was able to come together and finalize the celebration of our departing seniors.

This week our seniors have been participating in our College Readiness "boot camp" at the Barrio Logan site as one of their final requirements before we officially send them off in the fall! We couldn't be more proud of our seniors and all of their amazing accomplishments. Lastly, we would like to thank all of our supporters for seeing our vision and sticking by our side. We are grateful for your support in being able to give our students the gift of education! Congratulations to the Class of 2022!

BLCI Students Get Creative!
Barrio Logan site students and families were given the opportunity to participate in interactive workshops hosted by the New Children's Museum. During these workshops, they were able to express themselves through art by engaging in an Imaginative Storytelling workshop.

They wrote and created books on the topic of their choice. One student created an art book about her life. She included headshot drawings of the people in her life inside and outside of school. Others created stories around animals, and nature. Students and family members were heavily active throughout the event.

They also participated in a workshop that centered around sharing what change they would like to see in the world and/or what problem they would like to address. They did this by painting on canvases that were then showcased at the New Children's Museum on the 25th of June. At BLCI, we like to emphasize how important it is for our students and families to be engaged in various activities for holistic development, one being getting creative. Thank you to the New Children's Museum for this fun and amazing opportunity.
