How amazing is this list of this year's 100 Most Influential People of Care, which includes our very own Board Chair and Acelero Head Start Governance Advisory Committee member Tameka Henry!

Tameka, who is now running for Clark County School Board, is being recognized for "fighting for collective solutions for the most marginalized in her hometown—on food security, on youth engagement, and always, early education." Congratulations to Tameka on this well-deserved honor—we couldn't be prouder! And let's hear it for all these extraordinary people who are making great contributions to our nation's care system.

We love this 'Helper' story - let's all be like Cedric and continue to learn, grow, and inspire others!!

Every Friday we name a 'Helper of the Week.' Today we're excited to honor and celebrate our newest Helper: Cedric Bell at Acelero Learning Clark County. Cedric's love of sports and his excellent coaching and work with children caught the attention of an Acelero Learning Center Director, who encouraged Cedric to pursue teaching. And to his enormous credit, Cedric just finished his CDA in May - in the middle of the pandemic -- and has now been promoted to assistant teacher. Huge congratulations to Cedric on obtaining his CDA and becoming an assistant teacher - what an accomplishment!

Let this be a reminder to us all to stay open to opportunities and to be like Cedric and continue to learn, grow, and inspire others. #helperoftheweek #lookforthehelpers

Every Friday we announce a 'Helper of the Week.' This Friday, in honor of Head Start Awareness Month, we'd like to celebrate all those who work in Head Start for their continued commitment to the mission and their contributions to the communities that they serve. Thank you to all for your dedication and hard work, which has had an impact on so many children and families!

With that in mind, we're also eager to share this 18-minute documentary, which explores how students, families, teachers, and alumni across the country have been impacted by Head Start. The program has given over 33 million Americans a head start on their education. Happy Head Start Awareness Month!

Let's hear it for these FOUR Helpers from Acelero Learning Clark County and Acelero Learning Camden Philadelphia:

January Melendez
Gina Honrath
Deja Roldan
Asante Gonzalez

THANK YOU for what you do for children and families!

We are happy to celebrate FOUR Helpers this week. Let's hear it for these fine folks from Acelero Learning Clark County and Acelero Learning Camden Philadelphia: Ms. January Melendez, Gina Honrath, Ms. Deja Roldan, and Ms. Asante Gonzalez.

Ms. January Melendez is a teacher in Clark County. Ms. January taught at Strong Start Lorenzi last year and is now teaching Shine at Home 2.0 from virtual classroom 6, where the children have been actively reading with their parents at home. Most impressively, as a class, they have already read 600 books on Epic since the school year began!

Ms. Gina Honrath is the Center Director at the Grand Avenue Center in Camden, where 4 EHS classrooms and 2 Head Start classrooms safely opened on September 3rd. Thank you to Gina and Grand Avenue Center for following our health policies, especially maintaining classrooms as family units, and creating a learning environment, complete with masks and appropriate spacing between students, that ensures the safety of staff, children, and families alike.

Last but not least, Ms. Deja Roldan and Ms. Asante Gonzalez are EHS teachers at Grand Avenue Center. We loved hearing that a newly enrolled 2 ½ year old who joined their EHS classroom has truly blossomed since her arrival two weeks ago. We heard from Center Director Gina Honrath that this child has already started to learn the routine and - even more exciting! - to say her first words in this language-rich EHS classroom.

Thank you to our four helpers - we appreciate you and the work that you do for children and families! #helperoftheweek #lookforhelpers #communitystrong
