WEIS Radio played host to several educators who stopped by the studios Tuesday morning, to discuss the 21st Century Program in the Cherokee County school system.
That group included: Edna Wynn, Assistant Principal at Gaylesville; Laura Brown, Librarian at Cedar Bluff; Rasheeda Dupree, the Title 1 Educator at Centre Elementary School and Jana Chesnut, Librarian at Centre Middle School along with Randy Smith, who tells us a bit about the after-school initiative known as the 21st Century Program:
Each school tailors the program to make the maximum impact upon the lives of the student body at each facility – combining tutoring with enrichment activities focusing on developing character and life skills.
The program also promotes physical education, community awareness and an appreciation for such things as music and arts and crafts.
When students are happily engaged in something they enjoy, learning becomes much more exciting and ultimately easier, because it ceases to become a “chore”.
