Summer Academic Recovery

Last summer, we expanded summer offerings for students and will continue to do so this year. Our four-week program will provide intense, targeted intervention strategies for up to 150 students in math and literacy, including remote self-guided support for all 400 Erie students. It costs approximately $300 per student for the full summer programing. Donate today to sponsor an Erie student!

A message from our Board Chairwoman

Melanie Madigan, Board Chairwoman

Dear Friends of Erie,

I love that Erie is a proud second home to students. The stress of the pandemic on the children and families we serve can make connecting to learning a challenge. The strong bond and social emotional wellness we cultivate with students fosters academic success and sets them on a path to lifelong learning.

This summer we are offering a top of the line academic recovery program to students. People like you make our vision a reality. I hope you consider supporting Erie Elementary, and join The Erie Connection so you too can engage with this amazing school and connect with the Erie community.  

Wishing you a happy Spring!

With gratitude,

Signed by Melanie Madigan
