The COVID-19 pandemic made life in the music room a little different this fall. Due to regulations on singing, Echo Park students worked incredibly hard in class and at home to learn the song “Thankful” in American Sign Language. Their hard work not only came together to create a wonderful new piece of art but gave us the chance to look deeper into the way some friends at Echo Park communicate. Even during a pandemic with no singing, we were able to find the silver lining that sometimes the most beautiful performances are seen, not just heard.

Sheridan Story

Dear Echo Park Families:

 At Echo Park, we work hard to ensure students receive a healthy breakfast and lunch each day to support their developing brains and bodies.  Research shows that children who eat regular, nutritious meals are more likely to attend school and be engaged in learning. 

We are excited to collaborate again this year with The Sheridan Story to offer a free weekend food program to all of our students.

The Sheridan Story is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization with a mission to fight child hunger through community and school partnerships.  They strive to make a difference in children’s lives by focusing on food gaps like weekends, school breaks, and summer when children cannot receive meals in school.
