School Choice Week 2015 was jam-packed with celebrations! More than 11,082 School of Choice events across all 50 states happened throughout this week. This makes it the largest-ever celebration of opportunity in education. And we were part of it!
Take a look at some of the highlights from this year’s CHOICE events.
Benton Harbor Charter School Academy
In honor of National School Choice Week 2015, BHCSA is presenting their families with something sweet! During today’s conferences, families will enjoy a treat from the dessert bar and support BHCSA with a NSCW button pin, all while connecting with their child’s teacher.
The Bradford Academy Glee Club and Step Team were invited to perform in the Capitol rotunda after their appearance on Channel 4 just before the holidays. A crowd of National School Choice Week supporters, teachers and government workers gathered to see the students perform. Bradford Academy music teacher Laura LoDuca accompanied the students. Thank you, Ms. LoDuca, for choosing to provide these enriching and memorable experiences for students.
