Main Street School is our site. We have age-appropriate rooms for our club activities designed specificially for K &1, 2nd ad 3rd grade and 4th and older. Computers in each room. Gym and outdoor playground available for recreation and physical fitness programs. Another classroom available for art or if we have maximum capacity.


We began our before and after school program in 1983. By 1996, and after receiving a grant to help us focus well on older youth, we opened a second site for older kids only. In 2007, we began renting space as a designated site so we could create room environments specifically for the youth in our program.
