ROAR (After School)

Last Updated: 8/7/2018 5:38 PM

Our school was extremely fortunate to receive this approximately $650,000 grant which will be distributed to us over the next 5 years!

The 21st CCLC ROAR Program stands for: 21st CCLC (Century Community Learning Center) ROAR (Reach Onward Academic and Recreational) Program
The goals of the ROAR Program are:

  1. To improve the academic achievement on both state and nationally mandated tests for students at GMS
  2. To develop social skills needed for classroom success for all participating students
  3. To improve school spirit and community pride through participation in a wide range of enriching activities, parent involvement opportunities, and supportive, on-going community partnerships.

Please contact Amy Logan, ROAR Program Coodinator, with any questions that you might have!

There are 3 components for student participation in the 21st CCLC ROAR Program: After School, Before School and Summer Learning.

The After-School Program will be in operation Monday-Thursday from 3:20-5:45 p.m. Students may either be picked up at GMS at 5:45 p.m. or may ride the Activity Bus to Paint Lick or Camp Dick Elementaries. **Please remember that a daily note is required in order to ride the Activity Bus!**
