An update from The Learning Alliance

March 21, 2020


Where does Resilience come from? How can The Learning Alliance share our experience building resilience and learning with our families, community partners, friends and investors in a way that may be helpful during this difficult time? That is the question on my mind in recent days. As we all navigate the highs and lows of the 24 X 7 news cycle about the COVID-19 virus, it becomes clear that our ability to tap into our individual and collective resiliency will allow us to learn faster and grow stronger as we figure out how to slow down and defeat this virus. While The Learning Alliance has followed the school district’s lead and is no longer providing on campus programming at this time, we want our friends and investors to know that we are actively challenging ourselves to continue our work and seek new ways to support our school district, families, partners, and students virtually.

Here are a few things we are doing to stay connected with our stakeholders:

  • I am thrilled to announce that next Wednesday March 25th at 9:45 AM, we will hold our first virtual Moonshot Community Action Network (MCAN) meeting via Zoom with internationally renowned Leadership Coach Barbara Patterson to discuss “Where does resiliency come from?” Barbara will point us in the direction of how to tap into our internal wisdom and navigate the roller coaster of our inner thoughts. While space is limited to the first 100 participants, we will record and share the message broadly with anyone who would like to hear the insights.

  • We continue working hand in hand with Dr. Moore and his leadership team to see how we can best support them and the needs of our students through these difficult times.

Our hearts go out to each of you and your families. As one friend recently said to me, while we enact social distancing to keep each other safe, let’s not turn that into emotional isolation. Keep safe and stay tuned as we continue to create innovative ways to stay connected.
