Washington Middle School


Through partnership between the R.E.A.C.H. Initiative and After-School All-Stars Hawaii (ASAS Hawaii), Washington Middle School will now be able to provide afterschool activities for at least 160 students, who were previously determined to be “at-risk” children. Funding of $42,025 will work towards the development of a three hour per day program, one of which is dedicated as an “Academic Hour,” in order to improve student progress in school and fulfill education initiatives. In addition, there will be several field trips, opportunities to participate in sports, the organization of service learning projects, and two planned family nights at the school. With the available funding provided by the R.E.A.C.H. Initiative, low-income students will now experience the types of extra-curricular activities that are more widely available to middle- and upper-class students.
