The middle school art and technology after-school programs recently received a $500 donation from the Union Aid Society to provide students with nutritious snacks. The program operates until 5 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays through May.
Established by Jeff Evancho, middle school art teacher, the free after-school program provides students a safe, supervised environment for instruction in art and robotics.
Each session begins with a drink, sandwich, snack and fruit.
The art program was established during the 2009-10 school year and the robotics program began the following year. Combined, the programs serve more than 75 students.
