The Greater Peoria YMCA kicks off a new session of its Saturday morning Rebound youth basketball program at East Bluff Community Center on April 7. This is a free program for boys aged 12 - 14 and includes mentoring and guest speakers addressing topics including teamwork, leadership, cheating, bullying, gangs, academics, employment and healthy living. Snacks are included after the games. Students must arrive at 9 a.m. to play basketball.
Heidi Dowell's Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) class focused on African-American Olympians during Black History Month. Students each chose an African-American Olympic athlete, researching their early lives, how they trained for the Olympics and how many medals they won. Each student produced a poster of their findings.
