From our friends at the American Baseball Foundation

This summer has been a home run, and we can’t thank you enough for your support of our 2018 BASIC Summer Program and its participants. Of course, the end of the program is always a little bittersweet as we bid goodbye to our campers, but I think everyone had a good time and genuinely learned something.

Over the course of the summer, 140 eager children were able to spend time actively and collaboratively learning in such a way as to provide opportunities for choice and autonomy, a sense of belonging, supportive relationships, and a brighter future. They have had access to over 300 sports-related math and reading lessons and 160 hours of qualified coaches and educators all while learning, playing and connecting with one another. That is an action-packed camp experience!

We chalk this success up to our great BASIC curriculum, our staff, many of whom have logged more than thirty-years of collective experience in the teaching profession, and your support. We are proud to let you know that we have again seen impressive gains in our student’s learning targeting such crucial subjects as reading and math.

Here is a quote, which I believe to be true, from our 30th President of the United States of America: “Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” -Calvin Coolidge

Here are a few examples of all the fun we’ve been having this summer!

Thank you for your time. Thank you for your support. We couldn’t have done it without you, and we look forward to another great time in 2019!

Sincerely,
David Osinski
