At the Roger Clap Elementary, we work with a variety of community partnerships within Boston to offer our students and their families opportunities to support them. These partnerships provide students with the foundation to be successful in and out of the classroom. Many of these opportunities support the rigorous curriculum followed within the classroom.
These partnerships include:
Winning Every Student is a Non-Profit organization which offers tutoring, mentoring and intervention for students so that they may Win in every area of their life.
The Home for Little Wanderers helps build stable lives and hopeful futures for children who are abused, neglected or at-risk.

All girls have dreams. But Girl Scouts have the tools and support to make theirs come true.
Playworks (Recess Programming):
Playworks helps schools and districts make the most of recess through on-site staffing, consultative support, professional development, free resources, and more. We also support youth programs and other organizations that wish to improve playtime. Organizations like The Centers for Disease Control, and City Year all look to Playworks to inform practice and policy.
