Great Works School received a grant of $2,948.00 for “The Cool AID Club (Academic Adventures in Disguise)”. Sara Allis, Great Works School reading specialist, will be the project leader for this grant. This project will provide enriching and engaging opportunities to students through community service learning and peer collaboration. The goal is to foster a sense of belonging and importance of community. This grant will provide background knowledge for students to help them improve their vocabulary, comprehension, writing and problem solving skills. Students will participate in weekly activities that include guest speakers, field trips, making and selling products, practical life skills and the opportunity for students to really connect with their community.
