Dear Parents and Staff Members:

21st Century is participating in a fundraising food program called Market Day, the original fundraising food co-oop. has been operating since 1975. Each month, as a participating Market Day school,restaurant-quality food products, from the same vendors that supply many upscale restaurants, will be available for purchase. Our goal is to raise funds that directly support our students, teachers, and students families. We can raise these funds without our students going door-to-door, without purchasing products we wouldnt ordinarily purchase, and with the knowledge that all products are of exceptional quality and covered by a Satistaction Guarentee! The order sheet will be coming home once a month with your student. Please take a few minutes to review it and place an order. We are confident that this fundraising program will not only benifit our program, but will also benifit you as a consumer. You can find out more about Market Day and even place your order online at Register your email address to receive reminders to order and special offers for online customers. Our Market Day account # is 21650 C.C.L.C Please give Market Day a try! Please check order forms for the scheduled pickup date & time for your orders each month. Orders can be made online or by sending in order forms. Payment is expected by cash, check, or Bridge Card at pickup or with your order.

Message from Superintendent – Dr. Linda Hicks

Battle Creek Public Schools is extremely fortunate to have 21st Century, an excellent before and after school program for our students.  Quality after-school programs offer a vast array of learning experiences and include activities above and beyond the traditional school day.  There is accumulating research that after-school programs, summer school, and extended school days enable children who are behind to catch up and also enhances their social and emotional development.

Our 21st Century program enriches the lives of our students.  Battle Creek Public Schools is pleased and privileged to have such a great opportunity to meet the needs of our children.
