SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – Shrewsbury Health & Racquet Club (SHARC), in keeping with our Mission Statement, is committed to being an active and committed business partner for the schools in our community. SHARC recognizes that our schools play a vital role in the growth and prosperity of our community. At a time when our schools are facing significant budget and funding constraints, the support of their business partners to assist the advancement of their academic missions is greater than ever. Additionally, SHARC shares the schools’ commitments to promoting healthy, active lifestyles for their Students, Faculty and Staff and their families in an effort to promote overall physical, mental and emotional wellness.
While the initial partnerships with Beal Early Childhood Center and Parker Road Preschool in Shrewsbury came about as the result of the Corridor 9 School/Business Partnership Committee, the additional partnership opportunities are expanding with each meeting. The remaining school partnerships within our community are the result of SHARC employees actively reaching out to the local schools in an effort to share our commitment to promoting active, healthy lifestyles in the communities we serve.
SHARC is grateful that the Corridor Nine Area Chamber of Commerce fosters this opportunity for businesses to connect with the schools in our community. At a time when our schools are experiencing significant budget cuts and program eliminations, local businesses may have resources, staff and creative strategies to assist the schools with academic programs, sponsorships and donations. For through active School/Business partnerships we all will witness positive results in the form of strong educational foundations, innovative, creative students and a thriving economic environment where both our schools and our businesses will benefit.
