The Round 7 21st Century grants reflect the Department of Education’s belief in the educational and developmental goals being met through Kids Creative programs, particularly our highly successful Round 6 grant, which ended June 30, 2017. We are honored to be recognized in this way and are excited to continue the very real difference we’re making in the lives of our students and their families.
The funding will help to expand our work at ROCK 2 The Bronx at The Joseph O. Loretan Campus in the Bronx, which includes PS 536, Archer Elementary School and Bronx Little School, as well as at PS 102 in East Harlem. We have served these communities since 2011 and 2008 respectively and are excited to be able to offer even more youth the creative, critical thinking and social skills necessary to make peace within themselves and in society.
For more information on the award, feel free to check out this release from the Education Department.
I hope you join me in applauding the efforts of our students and staff at ROCK 2 The Bronx and PS
