Check out these great project-based learning initiatives from our Rest of State Subgrantees!

BestSelf Majorette

BestSelf was responsive to student voice this year by incorporating Majorette into programming. They partnered with a local dance company that has been providing Majorette programming two times per week during our afterschool program for a total of 8 weeks. The Majorette team got to perform their routine as part of the dance company's showcase in front of hundreds of people. They spent many hours of their spring break, practicing and preparing to compete in this showcase; for some students, it was their first time ever performing in front of an audience! The students’ dedication and effort shined through during their performance. They look forward to learning new routines and have even voiced interest in learning other styles of dance as well.


 
Hendy Elementary's ARCADE Student Newspaper

We are pleased to highlight the ARCADE Student Newspaper that participating students from Hendy Elementary (Elmira) created this spring. The program used this as an alternative to skill-building on select days in our homework room when those students did not have homework. They asked for submissions for the name of the paper and then each had their own assignments to research, write, and then type up. What a great example of project learning Download The ARCADE Hero Spring '22 Issue
