Are You Smarter Than A Breakthrough Student?

6th Annual Trivia Event to Support Manchester Students on their Path to College!

Mark your calendars and put your thinking caps on for March 15, 2023!

Don’t miss our sixth annual “Are You Smarter than a Breakthrough Student?” – A fun-filled community event to support educational equity for Manchester students. Breakthrough has been more important than ever for our students as they navigate pandemic learning loss and for our Teaching Fellows who are being trained as leaders and educators to help overcome the national teacher shortage crisis.

Please consider a SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITY to directly INSPIRE STUDENTS & DEVELOP TEACHERS! Your sponsorship will be blasted from social media channels reaching over 3,000 friends of Breakthrough including Manchester Business Leaders, as well as The Derryfield School and Southern New Hampshire University Communities!

Challenge yourself with trivia from the academically rigorous Breakthrough curriculum. Don’t worry, Breakthrough students will join each team to help get you the win! Test your middle school knowledge, get to know Breakthrough students, and Catch the Breakthrough Manchester Spirit! Who knows? You might even be the proud recipient of the coveted AYS Trophy!

Your sponsorship will make Breakthrough’s 32nd Summer happen!
