A Note from our Executive Director
Everyone needs a little time to recharge. Growing up, summer was that time. I went to camp, biked to the beach, and my family would always take a week of vacation. As an adult, I now recognize just how lucky I was to have summer for recreation, so that I could return to school eager to see my friends, having had relaxed time with my family.
This year, many of our students made up for “learning loss” by attending summer school. I’m so pleased that IVYP has been able to provide an additional three weeks of summer recreation for 100 elementary students. We are especially grateful to the City of Goleta, the Isla Vista Community Services District, Supervisor Gregg Hart and Supervisor Joan Hartmann for helping to underwrite the cost of our IVYP special summer session.
I hope you are able to find some time this summer to care for yourself. It has been a challenging year, and we all need some time to refresh.
