The Petit Family Foundation is Newest Funder for Watkinson School's SPHERE Summer Enrichment Program

Watkinson School is pleased to announce that our SPHERE Summer Enrichment Program is heading into its 46th year this summer. SPHERE is a five-week summer enrichment program for Hartford students entering 1st through 5th grade. SPHERE helps students improve their literacy, math and technology skills in a safe and fun environment. This critical program for Hartford youth would not be possible without the support of local organizations. Watkinson School thanks the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, and The George and Grace Long Foundation who have both been supporting this program for over 30 years, Stanley and Hinda Fisher Fund for 28 years of support, Ensworth Charitable Foundation for 13 years, J. Walton Bissell Foundation for 11 years, and Berkshire Bank for 8 years of supporting the SPHERE Summer Program. This year we are pleased to announce the addition of a new funder, the Petit Family Foundation.
