We have wanted to offer an after school program for some time now and we were finally awarded a grant to make that happen! This grant is in partnership with our Summer School Camp and we are excited to offer families this experience! We will have the opportunity to continue and grow our learning with hands-on experiences that include math, reading, writing, homework help, STEM, projects, gardening, and more! We are wrapping up the planning stage, but need parents to register so we can finalize groups and numbers. We hope to begin sometime in October. The program will run on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from 4-5:15pm. Transportation home will be provided.

Please use this link below to register your student(s). If you are unable to use the link- please call the elementary office to get signed up! 438-3195
