on Thursday, 18 June 2015

As the weather warmed and the close of the school year drew near, high school receptionist Ms. Burr took two 21st Century Charter School at Gary community groups the Cougar Belles and the Young Kings to a local Comfort Suites for an end of year Pool Party!

Guest blog by Ms. Arthur:

My class did an activity aligned with Indiana Standards showing skills of communication, social and multiply decimals and adding and subtracting. I wanted to give them an activity that related to a real world experience. Our motivational speaker name was Cynthia Thompson who was a reporter for a newspaper in Indiana.

On Saturday, June 6, 2015 at the 21st Century Charter School at Gary High School Graduation, two teenage girls walked down the aisle with their High School Diploma in hand already having been awarded their Associates Degree from Ivy Tech Community College several weeks prior.

GARY | The 21st Century Charter School's preschool program is one of more than 40 in Lake County that have been approved to be an On My Way Pre-K provider. It is the only charter school in Lake County to have its preschool program chosen, according to the school.

GARY | Joseph Harris stood in his cap and gown Saturday afternoon and hugged his father as tears streamed down both of their cheeks. "I'm going to the Army June 23," Harris said. "I'm not going to have much time with anyone before then." Harris was among the 30 graduates of 21st Century Charter School in Gary. His father, Jean Harris, said the teen held down two jobs while earning his diploma. "It was a rough journey," mother Joyce Harris said. "We stayed on him to make sure he got his education."
