GRANT #1 – “MAKING MY SCHOOL A G.R.E.A.T. PLACE” PROJECT GRANT
In support of the G.R.E.A.T. Middle School Curriculum, this grant is to be used solely to implement and complete the “Making My School a G.R.E.A.T. Place” school service project. These projects will have a significant community impact insofar as they will serve as avenues for the students to demonstrate their skills in positive communication, judgment, behavior, decision making, and concern for others through sharing and taking ownership in their school and community. The project will serve as a bridge connecting G.R.E.A.T. youth, law enforcement, the school, and the community through positive, interactive experiences.
