Message for Reading Advantage Parents

This is a reminder that your child is signed up for after school Reading Advantage. Reading Advantage consists of an hour of small group reading instruction, then an hour of enrichment activities and homework help. After school runs from dismissal time until 6pm, Monday-Friday. There are no after school buses, so all families are responsible for picking their scholar up by 6pm.

All after school spots are currently full. If your child frequently misses after school or has disruptive behavior, their spot may be given to a scholar on the wait list.

If you have any questions about after school, please reach out to our site coordinator Deja Carthon at dcarthon@aplusarts.com

Thank you for pursuing this opportunity for your child!
