This is a drop-in program; however, you must register your child (one-time only).  Your child may choose which day(s) they would like to stay depending on the subject area they need assistance in.  Students attending after-school assistance must come prepared with work to complete or they will be sent out of the classroom.  Please complete the registration form and have your child return it to the front office.
