Help PAST&E Combat Summer Learning Loss and Childhood Obesity

Dear Friend,

It's not too late to help low-income children stay safe, active, and learning this summer!

Your contribution to PAST&E today will enable "scholar athletes" like Franciso, Kassandra, Holli, Tsiyon, and Alberto (pictured) to participate in our nine-week "Serving Up Success" Summer Program at St. Johns Racquet Center (SJRC).

With full days of writing, math, history, art, science, fitness, tennis, and more, our rigorous activities keep at-risk children academically engaged, physically fit, and safe from the dangers of gang activity in their neighborhoods while their parents work.

Felton Factor Hits the Road

Miguel, Jasmine, Natisha, and Ristom (left to right with Coaches Anna Becker, John Block and Fitz Paccione) from the Felton Factor participated in a Challenger-level tournament at the Sprinker Tennis Center in Tacoma, WA on March 22-24. Facing tough competition, they had fun, learned much, and held their own. Congratulations, scholar athletes, for bringing home trophies in the 12 and Under Divisions! Our young Felton Factor scholar athletes are making their benefactor, Matt Felton (former Board Chair) very proud!
