RoS Spotlights


Waverly Central School District

Kimberly Rymer, a Site Coordinator at Waverly Central School District, shared about how the after-school program has ‘gone to the dogs’ in the absolute best way possible!


Students in the community service learning club had been collecting toys and treats to donate to Stray Haven Humane Society and SPCA. The entire REACH program got a surprise visit recently from the director of Waverly Stray Haven. The director talked to the kids about what the organization does and ways that students can help out and volunteer their time with the animals.

Way to go Wolverines!


 
Dunkirk City School's School 7 After-School Program


Marcella Dolce, School 7 Site Coordinator at Dunkirk City School, shared about a project her after-school program worked on this year. School 7 After-School Program promoted healthy lifestyles by running a turkey trot with all after-school participants and many of their families. As part of the project, the after-school students, families, and staff collected donations to provide Thanksgiving meals to families in need. With all of the generous donations and the partnership of the Outpour Project, we were able to provide turkeys to 21 families and full holiday meals to 7 families.


Great work, School 7!

Each year, the BioBuilderClub, made possible by 21st CCLC funding, researches and designs an experiment, travels to Boston to build and test the experiment in a professional lab, and presents their work at the BioBuilder Final Assembly with teams from all over the country.
