The Mentoring program provided support and training to identified at-risk fourth and fifth grade boys. Fourth and fifth grade girls gained weekly mentoring through Girls Inc. of Dothan. The Grow, Live, Learn program taught students about health, science and agriculture and provided students the opportunity to participate in the Bright Blooms vegetable garden which focused on healthy and nutritious living. The Live Rich program was created by stakeholders to create positive school-home relationships by providing resources, training, and materials of benefit to parents in supporting their children’s academic success. The school counselor facilitated the Career Readiness program through sixteen career clusters in weekly counseling lessons.
