Pathways Grant

Our partner school is the Regional Multicultural Magnet School (RMMS) and Naylor Academy in New London and Hartford.  The students at RMMS are half from New London and half from surrounding towns (Bozrah, Colchester, East Lyme, Lebanon, Lisbon, Lyme, Montville, etc) and the students at Naylor are from Hartford. I have been partnered with these schools for the last 6 yrs and I have to say I have had nothing but positive interactions.

*Please note that these trips do include travel time.  In most cases students will miss specials, and TB3 and TB4.  Seeing as social studies is held during TB5, on the days that we attend Pathways Grant programs we will use our social studies time block to work on skills missed during students TB3 and 4 classes.  Students will also have time during IE to check in with their TB3 and 4 teachers directly.
