Masa’s summer program began yesterday! We’re offering two robotics courses, two literacy courses, and a youth program this summer, and we’re so excited to have gotten started! In the coming weeks, we’ll also share details for some upcoming community events geared towards families of children under 5. Stay tuned!
Better late than never — see what we’ve been working on in our most recent newsletter. May included a visit from the new DOE Chancellor, Richard Carranza; a feature in El Diario about our parent organizing group’s campaign to end race-based bullying in local schools; and gearing up for summer!
Our Spring newsletter is out! Take a look here and read about our new parenting courses, upcoming robotics programs, and more!
We have several workshops and events in April — check out our calendar here!

Here at Masa, we’d like to share a huge congratulations and an enormous THANK YOU to Masa’s incredible Volunteer Committee, who ran a 5K/10K in late October (in the rain, no less) and fundraised $3,700 for Masa! We are so grateful for their efforts and proud to have them as part of #TeamMasa! You can see some pictures here.
