14 Jan Why We Love El Dorado (“El Do”) Elementary School! A Guest Blog Post
A guest Blog post on Parents for Public Schools, San Francisco by Hayley Walker and Dorothy Curry-Holman
As a manager at Real Options for City Kids, or R.O.C.K. for short, I’ve had the opportunity to work side-by-side with staff and parents at El Dorado Elementary School. R.O.C.K. and El Do have a unique partnership that expands far beyond the school day–we work with them to provide additional resources for families, a free after school program open to all students, and in-school support where it’s needed most. Through this partnership, I’ve been able to experience and participate in the true community school model that El Do offers. But don’t take my word for it–I sat down with Dorothy Curry-Holman, parent of a kindergarten student at El Dorado Elementary School, who shared some of her favorite things about El Do.
