Lowey 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) Grant for Little Axe Elementary and High Schools. The Nita M. Lowey 21st Century 21st CCLC program is authorized under Title IV, Part B of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The program provides federal funding for the establishment of community learning centers after school and summer programs that provide academic, artistic, and cultural enrichment opportunities for students who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools, in order to meet state and local standards in core academic subjects such as reading, math, and science.

After school staff collaborates with teachers to supplement lessons during the school day and to reinforce and enhance concepts learned through offering enrichment activities. Our program is working with a coalition of community partners.

Friendly Reminder: Each Tuesday and Thursday, your child will be sent home with 5 days’ worth of breakfast and lunch provided free to them through the school. If your child is a bus rider, we ask that if possible meet them at the bus stop to help carry their items. The meals have been packaged in the most efficient way possible but carrying this amount of food could be difficult for some of our students. If your child is a car rider, you may pick up their food at the loading dock of the elementary between the time of 3:00-3:45 on their scheduled day to be in traditional school. The buses will be arriving in the bus lane at this time so we ask that you park in the parking lot and walk up to the loading dock door to pick up your child’s food. Please remember, we are practicing social distancing and a mask must be worn. If you choose to opt out and do not want your child to receive these meals, please email your child’s teacher. We ask that you be patient with us as we try to find the most efficient way of delivering these meals to our students. If you have any questions, please contact the elementary at 405-447-0913. Meals will be provided as follows: A Schedule-Tuesday B Schedule-Thursday Virtual students may still pick up meals every Tuesday from 10:00am-11:30am.

At approximately 11:45 this morning, an electrical outlet shorted out in the portable buildings (5th grade classrooms). The building was evacuated, fire department notified, and the problem was remedied. At no time were any children in danger and all electrical safety systems (breakers) worked as they should. Classes have resumed as normal. Jay Thomas Superintendent
