Extended Day (Panther Club)
The Panther Club program offers children from Pre-Kindergarten through 6th grade a fun and safe place to stay before and after school. The program is offered on a drop in as needed basis with no advance registration required. Panther Club includes planned lessons, time for study and homework, science activities, arts and crafts, age appropriate games, indoor and outdoor play, and a daily snack.
