Growth Circles is a fiscally sponsored project of Community Initiatives benefitting the middle school students of Bayside MLK School in Marin City, California.

Thank you for sending the middle schoolers of Bayside MLK School in Marin City to New York City for spring break 2017! Led by their Social Studies/English teacher Mr. Edney, they were amazed by all the opportunities they learned about in the Big Apple, from the New York Stock Exchange to the Apollo Theater. They also visited Ellis Island, the Empire State Building, the UN, Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Grand Central Station, Central Park, the MET, the American Museum of Natural History, the Juilliard School, and they saw Aladdin on Broadway. The trip gave students a glimpse into a wide variety of career opportunities, and gave several of our students their first opportunity to travel by airplane. Most striking was their reaction to the cultural diversity, energy, and size of the city. Thank you for making it possible for our students to embark on this educational adventure!

Next up in 2018...Washington, D.C.!
