We are pleased to announce the introduction of a new free Commemorative Air Force® RISE ABOVE® Back-to-School Campaign designed by several organizations and volunteers to help schools inspire students to triumph in the face of adversity.

During difficult times it is instructive to look back and learn from others who have triumphed in the face of adversity.  For education leaders, it is especially important to support the social-emotional health of students, families, and staff.

Penda Learning is one of our new partners in our mission to provide support. Penda Science’s game-based, standards-aligned, online intervention platform helps students in grades 3 through 10 develop mastery and excel in science. Penda simplifies data-driven instruction and RTI/MTSS so all students can build their skills and confidence. If your district has a primarily classroom or lab-based curriculum for science and you need to plan for back to school with a distance learning component as well Penda is the perfect solution. Using an engaging interface that fully absorbs students in learning, Penda online activities supplement science instruction and support differentiated instruction. We are excited to be able to offer complimentary access to the Penda Science platform for one semester, with a significant discount on the purchase of the product once the trial period ends. We thank Penda for this critical support as districts face the financial challenge of finding and vetting online resources in this unique time in education.

How would this work? 

Contact Penda Learning at 888.919.0404 and mention code CAF for complimentary access. Since the content will need to be fully aligned and customized for your school district, and your specific students need to be loaded into the system, there is a nominal set-up fee.

The Commemorative Air Force Education Department is providing links and resources for parents, students and teachers to assist with home and online learning. The resources and hands-on lessons will continue to grow so please check back!
