On April 14th we made the decision to cancel our June 6, 2020 Diamond Jubilee. Then, we learned that we have Guardian Angels. That’s what we’ve named the generous group that have reached out and reaffirmed their intention let us keep their event contribution.

We are especially grateful to our Business Partner of the Year and Crown Jewel Sponsor, Passport Auto Group, and invite you to listen in as they share in their own words why they invest in our work.

On April 14th we made the prudent, yet disappointing, decision to cancel our June 6, 2020 Diamond Jubilee due to the extended stay-at-home order in place for Virginia. With its cancellation, we had been extremely concerned about that lost revenue.

Then, we learned that we have Guardian Angels. That’s what we’ve named the generous, committed group of sponsors and Host Committee members that have reached out and reaffirmed their intention let us keep their event contribution. This is truly heartwarming because their support enables us to fulfill our mission and continue our programs – especially during this critical moment. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to this amazing group of Guardian Angels.

The Bridge of Friendship by Joby Dupuis, level 4 New Neighbors teacher

Teachers at New Neighbors encourage our students to make American friends. We know it is easier to find friends in the immigrant communities where they live. But friendship with Americans opens doors that no other friendships can. There is no better way to master English or understand American culture than to have American friends. Don’t let a language barrier prevent a friendship from forming. Overcoming the challenge of cross lingual, cross cultural friendships is well worth the effort. If you are reading this as an American, reach out to these newest members of the American community. If you are a student reading this, don’t let fear of the unknown stop you. Wave, nod, say “Good morning”, share a cup of tea.

Build the bridge of friendship!

-Support remote schooling: Create a realistic schedule for getting work done in periods. -Build in breaks for socializing, exercising, and entertainment.
-Encourage healthy habits: Make sure your teen is getting adequate sleep, exercise, breaks, and meals.

Here are some great resources for our followers with young children from our Early Childhood team.

Check in with little kids:
Young children may be oblivious to the facts of the situation, but they may still feel unsettled by the changes in routine, or pick up on the fact that people around them are worried and upset. Plan to check in with younger children periodically and give them the chance to process any worries they may be having. Children who are tantruming more than usual, being defiant or acting out may actually be feeling anxious. Pick a calm, undistracted time and gently ask how they’re feeling and make sure to respond to outbursts in a calm, consistent, comforting way.

Here's what your support of #spring2action does:

"My English skills are improving. Before I came to New Neighbors, I couldn’t write a paragraph. Now I can. I do well with speaking and understanding, but I am still working hard to get better in spelling. It is not easy to write accurately without mistakes, but I am working on it. I hope one day I will become a good writer." - Nejuma

Even though our high school students can’t physically spend time at local businesses and organizations during their externship this week we have several businesses and local community members who have volunteered their time to speak virtually with our students!

Here are just a few of our local businesses who have volunteered their time:
Commonwealth Attorney’s Office
New Target
Building Momentum
Community Lodgings Inc.
The History Factory

This way our students will have the opportunities to ask questions about the field, work life, tips for successes, and they will continue to learn about different jobs.

Another wonderful Scottish Walk! Kudos to all involved. Quick favor: if anyone took a photo of the zebra (person dressed as a zebra), could you post it here or pm me. My toddler is obsessed. Yes, he liked the marchers and the dogs, ponies and Santa, but all he can talk about is the zebra. Go figure.
Is Deck the Halls happening this year as part of Scottish Christmas Walk weekend?
