Fifth Day Activities (Wednesdays)

Several communities are working with us to establish fifth day activities and opportunities for students. As programs become finalized, we will update them here. Importantly, those providers and the school district need to get the school year started and see what types of adjustments may be beneficial before launching the fifth day activities. We think most will be defined and ready by mid-September.
