1st Semester Credit Recovery
Credit Recovery for Students with Failures
Students with failures on their report card for S1 will have to complete Credit Recovery. Credit Recovery will begin on Monday, 2/12. Mr. Hill is moderating the program and will be sending a letter to students and parents with their child's schedule; 9th through 11th grade credit recovery will be a part of of our AfterSchool Program. Students will get a schedule for which days and times each week they must report after school. Failure to complete S1 Credit Recovery jeopardizes your child's chance of passing the course for the year and the likelihood of attending Summer School.
Senior Credit Recovery will be managed by Ms. Kriessler; she will inform seniors what is required.

21st Century AfterSchool Program
A Message From AfterSchool Coordinator, Mr. Howard:
As we are starting the 2nd half of the year. We will have new things for the month of February. We will have new clubs starting in February. We are having a dance club led by Jameel Hendricks who performed at the MTV Video Music Awards in September 2023, Poetry led by Jay Friday, and Modeling led by Tracy Williams. In addition, we will have Beat Club and Graphic Design by Mr. Scott starting
We are also launching the PET Winter Flag Football League and the PET Winter Soccer League in February along with restarting Intramural Basketball at EOM.
We will continue the awesome programs that are already set in place such as Culinary, Pentagon, Weightlifting, Robotics, Broadcasting, Horticulture, Esports, plus Yoga, and Jewelry Making. Most importantly we have HW help every single day when we have programming for students to get help and support their need from our teachers on their subjects and make up tests/quizzes they have missed.
We are starting Credit Recovery and it is imperative and vital for students who have failed a class(es) to attend so they can attain a passing grade.
Parents we strongly encourage to have your child(ren) stay in 21CCLC through the various clubs we have. If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please contact Lavon Howard at firstname.lastname@example.org

Each school receives a $1,000 grant to make a better Philly, culminating in an award ceremony where we will distribute over $100,000 in prizes.
