Skating on to College
Regina Shields, Site Supervisor, and Erin Neubauer-Keyes, Social Worker, at McKee After 3 passed this info on:
"On Friday, December 21st, the WAVE Program of McKee After 3 took students to visit the College of Staten Island. The WAVE Program (Work Achievement Values & Education) focuses on college and career exploration and preparation, and is a vital component of the McKee After 3 After School Enrichment Program at McKee High School. The students of the Curtis HS WAVE Program were also in attendance.
At CSI students took a guided walking tour of the large, expansive campus and visited the library, several academic departments and the college’s state-of-the-art athletic center. Students received instructions on CUNY application guidelines, admissions requirements, financial aid, etc. Afterwards, CSI treated the students to a pizza lunch while they relaxed in the student lounge and absorbed the atmosphere of college-life.
After the college tour was completed, the students were treated by WAVE to an ice-skating outing to the World War II Veterans’ rink at Clove Lakes Park. The students had a wonderful time and it was the perfect outing to kick-off the winter break from school."
