Family and Community Engagement Spotlight: Wayne County

We featured this FCEP spotlight in our November 2018 newsletter

Wayne County's MBK Program held a three-day Rites of Passage event for sixth graders at Newark Middle School. Topics ranged from racial tension to school life to scheduling to identifying positive role models. 

During the event, students learned what to expect now that they are in middle school. Boys were also taught six different ways to tie a tie and were given a dress shirt, a tie, and a book bag filled with supplies.
