Winter Before/After School Program

Winter Before/After School Program registrations have begun and some one of them have already ended too. So don’t wait until the last minute, go ahead and register for programs. PTA volunteers work very hard to bring these programs to you. Let your child enjoy the opportunity to learn at school itself. No need to run them around in this cold weather. You can find a full list of programs we offer on this sheet, just click on the name to open the program registration. You can also read more about them here.
