21st Century Program
Palm Grove Elementary's ACE Program Mission Statement:
We are dedicated and responsible, “to surround students with a community of support empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life."
Texas ACE (After school Centers on Education) provides no-cost activities before and after school and during summer for Pre-K through 5th grade students in Title I schools. The program is federally funded through 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) and administered on the state level by TEA.
When the last bell rings, Texas ACE is just getting started with interactive, hands-on learning disguised as fun and aligned to the school curriculum. Local programs also provide homework help, tutoring, and other targeted needs-based assistance, as well as enrichment activities such as sports, clubs, and youth development projects that build character, confidence, and leadership skills.
