Lynn Public Schools and LEAP are partnering to implement a free after-school and summer program at Thurgood Marshall Middle School (TMMS) called Dream MORE (Marshall Opportunities for Resilience and Education) for Lynn students in grades 6 – 8.
This program was made possible through a Wellington Catalyst gift awarded to LEAP for Education in December, 2019.
