21st Century After School Program
21CCLC had our first Lights on Afterschool on the Parkway on Thursday October 26th. The event was incredible, we named six ambassadors for our after school program in Ramir Arnold (9th), Carlos Perez (10th), Zion Stukes (10th), Sarena Haksem (10th), Kitara Colbert (10th), and Brianna Williams (11th). The broadcasting club showed a video highlighting some of the clubs that were taking place during after school. I want to thank Mr. Elkin and D'Andre Teagle for putting it together. D'Andre is one of 21CCLC's CO-OP students for the school year and he has done an amazing job. The cheerleading team led by Jayla Legare closed out the event with an awesome routine.
We have new clubs starting in November led by outside partners:
- Prevention Meets Fashion: Wednesdays
- Yoga: Mondays and Wednesdays
- You Talk While I Listen: Wednesdays
- BB4K (Entrepreneurship and Financial Literacy): Thursdays
- Riss Jewels (jewelry making): Tuesday and Wednesdays
