“The Dragons After Dismissal Program at Govans Elementary School has been a critical component in addressing student wholeness as it aligns with Baltimore City Public Schools’s Blueprint for Success. Not only has the after school program provided an engaging, safe and supportive environment to meet the many needs of our students, but it has offered a wide variety of enrichment activities that have piqued students’ interests and promoted their curiosity. Students’ involvement in art, theater, athletics, music, debate, student government, radio production, cooking, character education and STEM activities have awarded our children with fun and engaging experiences that have allowed them to make connections to resources in the community and to support and develop their individual lives as residents of Baltimore City. We feel extremely fortunate to be able to provide such a program to our Govans children.”– Assistant Principal Victoria Jennings
