Re-Applying for Funding

posted Feb 20, 2019, 11:15 AM by Samantha Richard

The 21st Century Competition for funding has been announced by the New Hampshire Department of Education and we will be seeking another five years of funding for the programs at Bakersville, Gossler Park, Hallsville, McDonough and Parker Varney Elementary Schools, in addition to, all four of Manchester’s public middle schools.


Our goal is to maintain the same level of excellent service and quality of programming for the next five years at these nine schools. We are currently soliciting your ideas, suggestions and letters of support for the program from students, parents, staff and other community members. If you are interested in writing a letter of support, or sharing how the Manchester 21 CCLC before and after school programs have had an impact on you personally, please email srichard@mansd.org.

Students at Beech St. are really enjoying the new Sit and Knit club where they get to learn about counting stitches and rows and create different patterns to knit. Yesterday Ms. Gonzalez was speaking with one of her students about wanting to knit a hat for her dogs. The student later surprised her with hats for each of her dogs
. Meet Solomio, modeling his new winter hat!
