This past year at Progressive Pupil has been an incredible one; our staff has more than doubled, we launched two major fundraising campaigns which helped us raise over $4,000, we’ve established ourselves on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, and we’ve made major strides in completing our first feature length documentary, Black and Cuba.

With this growth, we also need time to reflect and see what has worked and what needs a bit more focus. For the months of July and August, Progressive Pupil staff members will be engaging in an Enrichment Retreat, which will include travels to South Africa, Brazil and Ghana. Unfortunately, given this schedule we won’t be able to blog as frequently. We encourage you to continue checking our blog though, as we will be reblogging our “Greatest Hits” from the past year.
