Dear Potential Sponsor:
Empower Charter School is a student-centered and data-driven learning community within the Explore Schools network that focuses on the needs of individual learners. Our school culture communicates high academic and behavioral expectations for all learners.
Parents, students, faculty, staff, and the community collaborate to provide an environment in which each learner is able to continuously grow.
This year our first class of scholars became our first fifth graders! In order to prepare them for becoming middle-school students, we have designed a special 5th grade transition year program that includes: changing classes for Reading and Math, an Advisory small group that meets three times per week, and special uniforms that distinguish them as seniors. Additionally, we have planned an educational and community-building field experience for them, which we hope you will be an essential part of.

We are taking the 5th Grade Scholars to Frost Valley YMCA camp in the Catskills, in upstate New York. This is a 3-day, 2-night sleep away trip which, for many scholars, will be the first time they are away from home. This trip will allow them to learn environmental science, hike, experience thrilling adventures like ropes courses and climbing, and so much more. It will also allow them to spend quality time with their friends and teachers, and build a sense of confidence in themselves as well as a strong sense of belonging in their school community.
This trip can only happen if we raise the $10,000 necessary to get all of our scholars there.
Our goal is to ensure that no family will have to pay out of pocket expenses for the trip, so that no additional burden is placed on them. Our scholars are participating in fundraising events and working with their teachers and families to make this trip happen – and we are asking for your support.
You can make this outstanding educational experience a dream come true – and enrich the lives of the scholars from Empower Charter School, in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.
Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to your Help.
