BY MELANIE BUCK –
Students in 3rd thru 5th grades at Holly Harshman Elementary have a new program to enrich and enhance their learning opportunities. The program, aptly named, F.L.A.S.H. C.A.T.S., was made possible by a grant from the 21st Century Community Learning Center. HHE was one of only 19 schools in the state to receive the grant.
F.L.A.S.H. C.A.T.S. stands for Fun Learning After School Hours – Community Activities Teachers Students.
HHE said this is a ‘super opportunity for free, safe, and fun before- and afterschool enrichment. The program will take the place of the previous B.E.Y.O.N.D. program. Through F.L.A.S.H. C.A.T.S., students will not only be learning in a fun and controlled environment, they will also be able to earn points towards field trips, and be served a snack.
The hours for F.L.A.S.H. C.A.T.S. will be Monday thru Thursday mornings from 7 a.m. – 7:45 a.m. and those same afternoons, from 3:30 p.m. – 6 p.m. Free snacks/meals, as well as evening transportation, will be provided. There will be a parent meeting on Tuesday, August 25th, at 5:30 p.m.
