March 2022 News & Updates
Greetings Dear Friend,

Welcome to MileStone Academy's March 2022 Newsletter!

Welcome to MileStone Academy’s March 2022 Newsletter. 

Women’s History Month is an opportunity to recognize women’s contributions to history, society, and culture.

Women have come a long way but we have so far to go. I look forward to the day when there are no more first for women and their achievements are talked about everyday not relegated to one month.  

Not only do we celebrate the women trailblazers but we want to thank all the incredible women in our MileStone Community - our parents, our staff and the many women who have supported us through the years.  

March’s newsletter will share the most recent MileStone Happenings and provide you with important educational tips and resources.

Thank you staying connected with MileStone Academy.

Warmest Regards,
Michele Hewitt-Webster
Executive Director/Founder/Board Member

Overwhelmed to Overcome...
As COVID-19 vaccination rates rise and communities return to pre-pandemic lifestyles, many people are experiencing some anxiety or hesitancy about returning to old routines. Maybe you’re feeling uncertain about what your post-pandemic social life will look like, or you’re worried about not knowing who is or isn’t vaccinated as mask mandates come to an end. None of us have been through a global pandemic before, so it’s completely understandable to have some anxiety about this shift. Read more.
If you are like a lot of young people, running your own business is a career dream. However, it is no secret that doing so is difficult as many businesses fail within a few years of opening.

MileStone Academy supports the efforts of our local Ukrainian Educational and Cultural Center. Many of us are looking to find ways to do our part in helping Ukrainian citizens right now.

Here are three recommendations from Global Citizen to help make a difference.
