Maricopa Wells applying for 21st Century grant


Maricopa Wells Middle School is applying for a 21st Century Community Learning Century Grant for 2015-16.

According to Principal Rick Abel, the grant is worth $120,000-$140,000 a year for five years. It would pay for after-school and Saturday activities. Abel said those include academic activities, tutoring, character-building segments and more.

Charter funding had been paying for those activities until this year, when charters were removed from the district schools.

If you have questions or suggestions about the grant, please contact Principal Abel at 520-568-7103 or
