Motivated, Excited and Ready for School
Fourth grader Roque (pronounced Rocky) and second grader Gerardo Sanchez joined the Santa Fe South Boys & Girls Club, 5325 S. Pennsylvania, at the beginning of this school year. Their dad attributes the new motivated attitude to their involvement with the Boys & Girls Club. Their school attendance has increased, grades have improved and their social relationships have grown.
“When I was 5 years old, I wanted to be a mermaid. When I was 6 years old, I wanted to be a paleontologist. But from the time I was 7 until just a couple years ago, all I wanted to be was safe.”
