EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
Dear Friends and Family,
In November I am running the New York City Marathon to support my school, Harlem Success Academy Three. Running the New York City Marathon has always been on my "bucket list," but this opportunity is even more exciting because the money I raise will benefit a cause very dear to my heart.
Working with my scholars at Harlem Success Academy 3 has taught me the true meaning of resilience. Everyday, my kids come to school excited to learn and ready to work hard-- they take their education very seriously. My 4th graders have their eyes set on college, and I truly believe that because of this school, they will all get there. My scholars know that their neighborhoods are rough and that their friends at other schools don't receive the opportunities that they do. They are incredibly appreciative of the resources that the school provides, which is why I am so thrilled to be raising money on behalf of the scholars and their families.
I hope you will support my scholars and me as I train for this marathon. Your donations will help close the achievement gap that plagues so many in New York City.I can't wait to keep you all informed of my progress as I train for the race of my life.
Welcome to Mission Control for the 2012 Success Academy Charter Schools Marathon Team!
Please consider supporting our runners who are giving up their summer to train and run on behalf of 5000 New York City school children.
Your Money = Their Future.

Our goal is to provide world-class education to our scholars and we are constantly innovating to ensure we are employing the absolute best and most financially efficient methods of educating them. Every day we work to create an a rigorous and joyful learning environment for our own scholars while pushing for education policy reform so that ALL children have access to education they deserve. And we are incredibly proud of what our scholars have achieved! They are among the brightest, highest-achieving students in the state of New York thanks to the support of our dedicated teachers, staff and parents, as well as the preparation provided by our comprehensive curriculum and school model. Importantly, while attaining stellar test scores is certainly wonderful, it is not our primary focus. Rather, our objective is to prepare our scholars with a best-in-class education foundation that sets them up for success in college and beyond.
