Geneva Middle School creates PRIDE program

GENEVA, NY – Geneva Middle School has been awarded a grant that supports the creation of an after-school PRIDE Program (Panthers Realizing Individual Dreams Everyday). The PRIDE program will provide academic enrichment opportunities after school from 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. for grades 6 – 8. It will help students meet State and city standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math. Students will also be exposed to a broad array of youth development enrichment activities that will complement their regular academic programs, such as drug and alcohol prevention programs; art, music and technology programs; counseling and even character education.The PRIDE after-school program will begin October 25th and run until June. Students who are involved in these types of programs after school tend to be more engaged during the day, which can lead to increased academic achievement. The Geneva City School District hopes that each child will take full advantage of this wonderful opportunity. To hear more about the program please call the Geneva Middle School at 781-0404 ext. 3228
