Helping Our School

West Main's After-School
Personal Improvement Program (PIP)

After learning of a program in Streetsboro to build self-esteem, Dr. Grant approached the Parks and Recreation Department in September about the possibility of implementing a similar program at West Main. The hope is that this is another avenue (like our PEAK program) to help students feel better about themselves and, in return, will increase student achievement. 


Over the past few months, Dr. Grant has met with Jennifer Rice and Elaine VanHoose (Parks and Recreation Department), Joe Fisher (Ravenna City Health Commissioner), Jen Fisette (Kent State University), Bill McCluskey (Portage County Health Board) and Tina Hannahs (West Main teacher) to plan/create/implement an after-school program as part of the Parks and Recreation offerings for West Main students in grades 3-5.

(Story continued below...)

The focus of PIP (a partnership between West Main Elementary, Ravenna Parks and Recreation, Kent State University and the Portage County Health Department) is:

  • Nutrition
  • Physical activity
  • Self-esteem
  • Safety
  • Personal & social responsibility

The program began January 28, 2013 and is held after school at West Main on Mondays and Wednesdays. Each session is one hour in length – a guest speaker for 15 minutes followed by three 15-minute stations involving physical activity. The physical activity stations are run by KSU education students. Transportation home is not provided. Families will be invited to some of the planned activities. To date, forty-eight students are registered!
