R.A. Hubbard programs a 'tremendous success'

NORTH COURTLAND — R.A. Hubbard's extended-day and summer programs have been a "tremendous success" since their inception last fall, said principal Denise Stovall.

A federal 21st Century Community Learning Center grant funds the programs. The funds have allowed the school to offer educational activities to students whose parents don't get off work before 3 p.m. and a half-day summer program for students in kindergarten through eighth grade.

"The main benefit is to help students be more successful academically as well as allowing them to have fun while learning," said Stovall.

Teachers and students have been so happy with the programs, they plan to hold a 21st Century celebration at the school Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Stovall urged everyone in the community to attend and said there would be games, food and activities.

Teachers will also show a video in the school cafeteria about the programs, she said.
