Greetings Friends and Family,

The National African American Male Wellness Initiative and the West Akron 5K Run/Walk have come together for Wellness and Scholarship. The National African American Male Wellness Initiative aims to bring awareness of disparities within diabetes, high blood pressure, and the risk of stroke among men. The West Akron 5K Run/Walk aims to supply our schools that are lacking the resources needed to ensure our children receive the best education possible.

We need your support to take both of these important issues head on! We invite you to join with us on Saturday August 3rd, 2019 at 8:00am for the 5K Run/Walk starting at Bucthel CLC located at 1040 Copley Road Akron, OH 44320.

There is no cost for walking but still consider making a donation. Those who wish to run please register at the site below. If you have already registered or donated, thank you so much for your support!

Please feel free to share with your networks and for more information please call 330-576-4163.

If you can’t run you can walk. If you can’t walk you can still donate!!!

Thank you Dent Family for supporting the Buchtel Cluster! Who will you be running for?

Buchtel CLC would like to invite you to our 3rd annual "CLAP-IN" which will be held on the 1st day of school Monday August 27, 2018 starting at 7:30am at the main entrance of the high school side. This event began in 2016, under the tutelage of Assistant Principal Dr. Erica Glover and the Buchtel CLC staff to encourage students on the 1st day of school. Due to the success and positive response, it was decided to make this an annual event. Our "CLAP-IN" is a way for parents, the community and the staff to welcome all Buchtel scholars back to school in a positive way. The red carpet will be rolled out and students will be greeted with cameras, a DJ, signs, selfie boards with encouraging words, high fives, low fives, hugs and lots of love. Our desire is to encourage our scholars and let them know they are not alone. There is a community of people surrounding and supporting them on their academic journey. We are asking that you come and support these students and staff for this positive event as we come together to support their strive towards excellence during this upcoming school year.

Our motto at Buchtel CLC is "IT TAKES A VILLAGE AND WE ARE THAT VILLAGE".

Thank you and we hope to see you at the Buchtel CLC "CLAP-IN"
