Hello

We've made it to the last scheduled newsletter for the school year! We are so proud of the Next Level Scholars Class of 2020 and all your accomplishments. It has been exciting to celebrate you all over the last month or so as you prepare for your post-secondary plans. We'll be sharing a few more highlights (videos, fundraising winners & more) over the next few weeks.

While this is the last programming newsletter you will receive from me, you will continue to hear from Erin throughout the summer. DFS is still here to support you as you head off to post-secondary. Be sure to keep checking your email and reach out with any questions along the way!
