Back to School Townhall 2022

 

Los Angeles, California (August 20th, 2022) – Students and Teachers have been faced with some of the most trying and difficult circumstances in recent years. As the new school year draws near The Ashe Academy will be ramping up efforts to ensure teachers and students get the support they need to truly flourish! Our Back to School 2022 event offers several different opportunities to make a difference in the lives of students and educators, through donating, participating in discussions, sponsorships, etc.

 

As a part of our Back to School 2022 event, The Ashe Academy will once again launch an Adopt a Classroom campaign to help provide crucial materials to classrooms that all too often are paid for out of the pockets of teachers. On average, each school year teachers spend $750 of their own money on supplies for the classrooms and students. Teachers work tirelessly to educate students with very limited resources. As part of our Back to School 2022 event, our goal is to adopt 10 classrooms this year. We want to provide those teachers and students with beneficial supplies and resources. Participants can donate to the Adopt-A-Classroom campaign & nominate a deserving teacher.

 

Bonus Reward: Thanks to our partners the Teach 1 Reach 1 Foundation, as part of our Back to School 2022 event, when you adopt a classroom in Los Angeles, Ventura, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Orange counties, ALL the students at that school are eligible for a drawing for 30 FREE tickets to a Los Angeles area NBA game in Jan/Feb 2023.

 

In addition to adopting classrooms, The Ashe Academy will be hosting the Back to School Townhall 2022 to have insightful discussions around education, and how to create a better learning environment. Through bringing Educators, Students, Parents, and Guardians together The Ashe Academy strives to build a bridge of communication towards educational excellence. The Back to School Townhall 2022 Parents Panel is moderated by Tajh Sutton, the Teacher Panel is moderated by founding board member of The Ashe Academy and Career Higher Ed Counselor, DeWayne Shaeffer in addition the Student Panel is moderated by California Lutheran University Student, Peter Horvet.

 

Rounding out the Back to School 2022 event activities, we are excited to partner with Holy Trinity Lutheran Church and the Teach 1 Reach 1 Foundation for a Supply Drive Giveaway to students and families in need from the Los Angeles/Inglewood/Long Beach/Compton communities on Saturday, August 20, 2022.
