Immediately following our closure in March, our dedicated staff started planning virtual programming for our STARS. We started by creating virtual lunches, where our STARS could join daily to have lunch and share stories. We also expanded our Facebook community connections by posting various activities, questions and challenges multiple times a day to keep our STARS, volunteers, supporters and families engaged. On Monday, April 6th we began offering virtual classes to our STARS. We are currently offering 20 different classes a week that STARS can participate in daily. We have classes that include Art Therapy, Fitness, Games, Business, Baking and more! We are so grateful to our amazing staff for creating quality online programing for our STARS in such a short amount of time. We are also grateful to our supporters, families, volunteers and our STARS for helping to make this online programing possible.
See below for what our families are saying about the virtual programing:
“ALL the teachers/staff are doing a fabulous job!! Thank you for all the work, effort, brain power and joy you have brought not only to our family but every STAR that is on Zoom. YOU are making a difference in the midst of craziness. Thank you for the creativity, thoughtful presentations, and just fabulous out of the box thinking!!”
“I can’t thank you all enough for the fabulous classes you are offering the STARS and their families. All of your staff is so charming! “Bob Ross” was incredible yesterday teaching us how to paint. We love the schedule and activities. My STAR was engaged! Thank you, again, for all of your hard work and professionalism.”
“I want to let you know how awesome the virtual program is for my STAR. We love the programs and enjoy the enthusiasm of all the teachers. I don’t know what we would do without you all.”
“Thank you ALL at Wellspring for the terrific classes you have been creating for the STARS. ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️ You have done a fantastic job of putting in this new virtual teaching world! It’s made a HUGE difference for our STAR and all of us at home to see how engaged and connected our STAR is to their favorite people.
