Notification for 21st Century serving grades 5-12


Dear Parents and 21st Century Stakeholders,

We are finishing our 5th year with the Middle and High School 21st Century grant that serves students in grades 5-12 at the conclusion of our summer program on June, 28, 2019. Although we applied for a new grant, we were not selected for this upcoming round of funding, therefore 21st Century after school and summer programs will no longer be offered for students in grades 5-12. Thank you for your support over the past 5 years. It has been a pleasure serving the Middle and High School students. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
