All Kinds of News for February 14, 2018
Point School Puerto Rico received a long-awaited text message last week at the annual National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs (NATSAP) Conference. The text message proudly proclaimed, “Power is back on finally. Now we can get some work done.”
There were many high fives, hugs, laughs, and sighs of relief to follow. Tracey Bachrach, Admissions and Outreach for Point School Puerto Rico (PSPR), exclaimed, “I was so excited, I could not sit still for the next two hours. I felt like I was going to burst with joy and excitement!”
Just one month after PSPR announced its restructure and rebranding efforts as a hybrid gap year program for young adult men, Hurricane Maria hit the island, knocking out power. Jason Cox, co-owner of PSPR recalls, “We didn’t feel comfortable allowing students into our program without stable electricity. It has been difficult for the staff of Point School Puerto Rico to patiently await the restart of their program, and they would like to thank everyone who has reached out over the past four months with kindness and concern. Now it’s time to celebrate and get to work!
Now that power is back on, the celebratory electric slide has been happening non stop. The pool is being refilled, walls repainted, reinstalling the air conditioners, and hanging some brightly colored curtains.
If you have questions about this unique hybrid gap year or are an 18 -22 year old interested, please contact Tracey Bachrach at firstname.lastname@example.org
