UPDATES ON LOCAL INITIATIVES
& ORGANIZATIONS IN HERMON
Bushnell is enrolling new students in PreK-5th Grade for regular classes, and Kindergarten-3rd for their Dual Language program! Currently all instruction is virtual due to the pandemic, and the teachers have done an incredible job adjusting to remote-learning and the students are continuing to log on and learn! The NPGs recently awarded by the Hermon NC have gone to good use – the books were distributed to 5th graders, and the garden ranger has been able to continue providing maintenance during the closure.
LACPA is now enrolling for the 2021-2022 school year! Hermon's local charter school has recently initiated its new law & social justice pathway as well as a carpentry pre-apprenticeship program as well that has a direct connection to union shop jobs. Their graduation rate holds steady at 95%, with 87% of students being accepted at 4-year universities, including UCLA, UC Berkeley, and Stanford!
