21st CCLC classes have me reaching for the stars for my students and their families. I've seen what 21st CCLC grant classes can do for our students, our families, our educational staff and I'm happy to be a part of a community that encourages us to advocate for the ever evolving needs of our community by creating programs that make a difference.
