Reach Them to Teach Them

Grants to Support Outreach at Clark, Jackson-Via, and Johnson Elementary Schools

A former member of the Charlottesville School Board, Muriel D. Wiggins established Reach Them to Teach Them to assist Clark, Johnson, and Jackson-Via Elementary Schools in developing strong connections with pupils and their families. Launched during the 2006-2007 school year, the program was funded privately for three years and subsequently has received grant support from the Grace D. Riggs Fund in the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation. The program has had a significant impact on students, families, teachers, and administrators. We hope that this collection of ideas submitted over the last seven years serves to encourage the development of future submissions for the Reach Them to Teach Them program.
