The and have decades of history together, but this time the Rotary is taking it to a new level.
In years past, the Rotary has brought students from Armstrong to the to participate in meetings to help the students gain a better perspective of where volunteers come from, who they are, and why they devote their time, resources and scholarship to Armstrong participants.
This year, however, the Golden Valley Rotary is bringing their entire membership, not just the volunteers, to Armstrong High School to meet the students in Armstrong’s “A” School, an in-school student choice alternative program for students who have the determination to graduate from high school, but for whom a regular classroom setting is not working.
They’ll be meeting at Armstrong on Tuesday, Jan. 31, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Clasroom 354, with lunch catered by Robbinsdale Area Schools Food Services.
The entire Golden Valley Rotary will see the “A” School in action, and learn more about the organization and operations of the “A” School, and the value of the “A” School experience from students.
The Rotary has a program called STRIVE: Students Taking a Renewed Interest in the Value of Education, which partners with the “A” School. The membership has recently committed to increase their level of support for both the “A” School program and the STRIVE program, along with additional future scholarships for students.
