After School Learning Lab will begin Thursday, Sept. 14. There is ASLL every Tuesday and Thursday that school is in session. There is an activity bus that will bring your child home afterwards. It leaves the school at 4:30 p.m. and transports the students who live farther out East End Road before heading back to town and dropping those students off. Students will be referred to stay for ASLL by their teacher. A permission slip is required to stay after school and they are available in the classrooms and in the office.

Scholastic News is a publication that many teachers find very informative for students.
