“What I like about Dream MORE is being on the Zoom and talking to others in the class and I get to make my own music. Maybe I can be a musician in the future!”️

– Zachstry A., 7th Grade Student at Thurgood Marshall Middle School attending Dream MORE, Music/Beat Making

“What I like about Dream MORE is we get to play games, have fun with one another, and get to make incredible projects like the bridge made out of paper and tape.”️

Molly Cohen Principal of Thurgood Marshall Middle School

“After months of planning and collaboration between LEAP staff, Thurgood Marshall Middle School teachers and the community, the Dream MORE program kicked off on July 7th in a virtual format. Thirty-four English learners are learning important English language and computer literacy skills, which will prepare them for their return to school this fall. We can’t wait for our students to share their experiences!”
