GREETINGS
It's hard to imagine the third quarter of the school year has come to a close. Despite the current climate, our KIPP Team and Family worked tirelessly to ensure KIPPsters received their third quarter report cards in the mail. Thank you to all who played a role in getting all 1,300 envelopes out to families this week!

MESSAGE TO KIPPSTERS
Not seeing our incredible KIPPsters in person on a daily basis has been hard for staff. We are missing them like crazy. To share what they are missing most, the KIPP VOICE Elementary team put together a special video for KIPPsters.

ALUMNI UPDATE
Thanks to the power of technology, the KIPP Through College team has continued to provide support to KIPP Jacksonville alumni enrolled in high school.
