Hello OST Community!
Below we’ve added a brief recap of the February Network meeting, resources, and community announcements, along with upcoming Network dates to remember. Here is a copy of our February 1st meeting slideshow and Newsletter.
During our last meeting we spoke about stereotypes, biases, and how they impact students in school, out of school, and on social media. We watched 2 videos related to the topic. 1 video, was of a young African American man who was dealing with stereotypes in the classical music world, and the the other was of a video that has recently gone viral.

Hello Summer Program Providers!
The Village, CPS, Agenda for Children OST, CFCC, & DHSP are hosting the 2023 Rollin’ N Summer Resources. This resource fair is being set up to help Cambridge families get ready for summer and will take place on Saturday, March 4th, from 1-4:30pm, at the CSUS/King Open Building, located at 850 Cambridge Street. We invite you to come and set up a table to have families hear about and/or complete applications for your summer programs.
This fun event for K-8 families will also include roller skating run by Party Vision. We’ll provide snacks and some entertainment for younger children (provided by community partners) so that caregivers can get applications and check out the summer program options for their children.
