About this Grantee
Mrs. Jordan and Mrs. Heston will introduce “Reaching the Summit,” a unique after school program designed to close the achievement gaps for struggling students. School staff members and community volunteers will facilitate the program and engage students in learning by reinforcing and complementing classroom instruction in new and exciting ways. Participating students will have the opportunity to improve their academic skills and take part in school based mentoring. Students will also develop positive relationships with their peers and school staff members, which will result in improved attendance, academic progress, and greater connectivity to the school community.
