We are thrilled to announce that Ludlow High School is a new recipient of the 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant! The new SOAR Program is similar to SHINE, but its focus is on the 7th, 8th, and 9th grades. Ludlow will partner with NaviGo Prep to coordinate before-school, after-school, and summer programming to students. Activities will include homework help and tutoring, new clubs and enrichments, college and career readiness ...activities and experiences, and the creation of an Innovation Lab (Maker Space). We'll partner with the Kenton County Public Library to increase literacy activities, the PEP Grant to add health and fitness activities, 4H to bring leadership, citizenship, and budgeting experiences, and Women's Crisis Center to extend the Green Dot Violence Prevention Program to the middle school grades. NKU, Gateway, and the NKY Chamber of Commerce will also partner to add college and career readiness encounters. SOAR will start in the Fall of 2015. We can't wait to provide this cool and exciting opportunity to our 7th, 8th, and 9th graders!
