Ethel Taylor Academy Welcomes students, Community Back to School with an Ice Cream Social
Ethel Taylor Academy kicked off its upcoming school year with community partners, parents, teachers and, of course, its students on Aug. 9, 2017, with an ice cream social.
“Today, we’re celebrating our community,” said Sherwin Ealy, principal at Ethel Taylor Academy. “We’re having a traditional ice cream social, but we’re also having a ribbon-cutting ceremony to say ‘Hey, this is a new school because this is a concept we haven’t been exposed to before … It’s a new beginning for everything we do.’”
Ethel Taylor Academy is one of nine schools launching a specialized program for the 2017-2018 school year through Cincinnati Public Schools’ (CPS) Vision 2020: My Tomorrow program. Students, parents and community members collaborated to determine New Tech as the school’s specialized program of choice, creating an opportunity to experience learning that will build their problem-solving, critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity skills.
