Educating the Whole Child

Joyful and Nurturing Community


DEAR HORIZONS AT NCCS FAMILY,

Our theme for this summer, “Rise Up with Hope,� will continue to guide our work throughout the year and captures the optimism we feel. Our optimism has been fueled by our time together this summer, which really did feel like time together, even though we operated at a distance. We participated in virtual morning meetings, daily math

and literacy classes, and even had virtual lunches together. We gathered for weekly assemblies, virtual field trips, and community-wide events, as we do every summer. Our kids created art, music, and videos to lift up their families, their neighbors, and each other. Together, we learned that even under very challenging conditions, we could find joy and hope within ourselves and bring joy and hope to others. You have also fueled our optimism. As you will see in this report, your steadfast support of Horizons gave us the confidence to adapt, evolve, and innovate to meet the growing and ever-changing needs of our families. We have been able to provide our students and families with certainty in a time of great uncertainty, because that is what you provide to us. Throughout this difficult year, it is your generosity and messages of support and encouragement that continue to inspire the Horizons community to rise up with hope. Thank you! With sincere gratitude,

NANCY VON EULER Executive Director 3

As I reflect back on this year, I feel a deep sense of gratitude for the vision, mission, and values statements the Board approved in March 2019. These statements of purpose and commitment have been our North Star as we grappled with some challenges that were completely new and others that were discouragingly familiar. Even as we continue to weather the storm of COVID-19 and the tolls that racial, economic, and educational injustice take on our community, I feel a deep sense of confidence that we will emerge from this time stronger and more committed than ever to be an instrument and voice for change.


The Need is Greater Now than Ever Before COVID-19 HAS WIDENED THE OPPORTUNITY GAP FOR THE COMMUNITIES WE SERVE

A Horizons parent, Ysela, shared that her family struggled financially when she had to leave her job to care for and support her son, Mathew, in his remote learning. Ysela said, “Mathew saw the stress of the pandemic on his family and how Horizons made it easier for us, and it inspired him to try to help others.” READ MORE ABOUT THEIR FAMILY’S STORY HERE: horizonskids.org/news/blog/

The COVID-19 crisis has been universally challenging, but the communities of color that we serve have been especially hard hit. Our caregivers are more likely to have experienced job loss or to work in frontline jobs that put them at risk. The communities we serve have experienced high rates of infection, hospitalization, and, sadly, death. The COVID-19 crisis has exposed the deep chasm in educational equity and opportunity that our students face.

SUMMER 2020 Horizons transitioned our Summer Program, including many of our beloved traditions, to a virtual format, emphasizing connection and social and emotional wellbeing. We made sure every student could access our programming by providing supplies, technology, translation, and technical support. Grocery gift cards, family workshops, and social work support helped our families navigate this very difficult time.

“Class discussions gave me a way to express my feelings and learn how to use my voice. I saw how members of our own Horizons community used their own voices for change and it made me want to use my voice as well. I appreciate that Horizons wanted to know more about our own thoughts and perspectives about the racial injustice happening around us.�


Continuing to Adapt and Innovate SERVING MORE STUDENTS

EXPANDING PROGRAMMING

Horizons will embark on a phased-in plan to shift our entry grades, which are currently Kindergarten, 2nd grade, and 6th grade, which will:

We know our students will need additional support to make up lost ground due to COVID-19. Building on the successes we had during the summer, we are restructuring and expanding our school-year programming to provide:

• Double our number of Kindergarten students, increasing the percentage of students who are reading on grade level by 3rd grade • Admit all of our students (except those filling vacancies) by 4th grade to prepare them for a successful transition to middle school

horizonskids.org

• Increase the total number of students in the program by 10%

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE CHANGE IN ADMISSION ENTRY GRADES HERE: horizonskids.org/news/ 6

• Academic support to twice as many students • Expert college-readiness guidance and support • More opportunities to connect with peers and explore new enrichments • Continued programming to support family wellbeing

Your Support Makes a Difference WITH YOUR HELP, WE CAN ENSURE THAT OUR STUDENTS CAN CONTINUE TO OVERCOME HARDSHIP, BUILD RESILIENCE, AND ACHIEVE THEIR DREAMS.

COLLEGE ACCEPTANCE 100% of Horizons graduating seniors from the class of 2020 were accepted to college for the fall

“I am working on a scholarship fund to help students continue their higher education. I came up with the idea because I wanted to make a difference in the community by trying to give back, like Horizons does. This scholarship will help students who want to continue their education but may not qualify for financial aid for a variety of reasons. Horizons is helping me spread the word about this scholarship within the community.” NIKAYLA Junior at Western Connecticut State University, Teaching Assistant, Horizons Summer Program

HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION 100% of Horizons 12th grade students graduated from high school in June 2020


RECOGNIZING THE OUTSTANDING COMMITMENT OF FACULTY AND STAFF Our annual Leadership Celebration was held as a virtual event on October 28, 2020, bringing together the Board of Directors, Board of Governors, and special guests to hear program updates and recognize faculty and staff for exceptional service to Horizons. This year, we recognized three individuals who have contributed significantly, playing numerous roles over many years. Joan Guzzetti began her work with Horizons in 2001 as a tutor and a teacher in our Summer Program. She continues as a tutor in our program to this day and has built strong and lasting relationships with the students and families she has supported. Joan is also known for being the tireless and cherished Horizons photographer for the last 12 years, artfully capturing the joyful moments that characterize Horizons.

Nehemie Moïse, a graduate of Horizons herself with more than 16 years on staff, brings the perspective of student, teaching assistant, and academic coach to her current role as Family and Program Director. In this capacity, Nehemie ensures that all of our programming helps to support the social and emotional wellbeing of our students and their families. Nehemie has contributed to building equity and inclusion in our communities as a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion facilitator for New Canaan Country School, and as a co-chair of the Social Justice and Equity task force for Norwalk ACTS.

Lavone Roberson comes from a family of Horizons graduates and started herself at Horizons in Kindergarten. She went on to serve for 16 years in various roles including teaching assistant, lead teacher, academic coach, and tutor. All of these roles and her 14 years as a teacher for Norwalk Public Schools have prepared her well for her current role as Academic Director. In this position, Lavone brings her academic expertise and deep empathy for students and caregivers to the table as she designs programs to support student success. She is a valued member of Norwalk ACTS and Stamford Cradle to Career workgroups and represents Horizons at NCCS on Stamford Stands Against Racism.

GEORGE E. STEVENS VISIONARY AWARD The George E. Stevens Visionary Award honors a Horizons at NCCS supporter who has contributed to the realization of the vision of the founder of Horizons, George E. Stevens, through significant investment and an unparalleled commitment. This year’s recipient is Newman’s Own Foundation, which has been supporting Horizons at NCCS for 27 years. This longstanding commitment and partnership enables Horizons to provide the level of programming and support our students and their families need: creating opportunities, building brighter futures, and being an inspiration for change.

“We are proud to have provided support to the Horizons program at New Canaan Country School for over 20 years. Horizons at NCCS plays an important role in our community, helping to close the opportunity gap by bringing enriching, educational experiences to underserved children.”

MIRIAM E. NELSON, Acting President and CEO Newman’s Own Foundation

And thank you, as always, to our backyard pool donors. We missed visiting you in summer 2020, but we look forward to being back in summer 2021!

New Pool will Support a Growing Program Swimming has always been a cornerstone of the Horizons Summer Program, providing the perfect vehicle for students to overcome fear and build confidence, all while acquiring a critical life skill. Thanks to the generosity of an amazing group of supporters, Horizons now has a brand-new, much larger, and upgraded pool, which will act as a springboard for years to come as our students master swimming skills, building confidence that spills over into all aspects of their lives.

We are still raising funds for this project. If you would like to dive in as a pool supporter, please reach out to Executive Director, Nancy von Euler at nvoneuler@horizonskids.org.
