Dear families of 7th & 8th grade

Welcome back to the 2020-2021 school year! I hope you had a great summer! I am happy to share information about the Middle School afterschool VELA program for the new and returning students. Also check out the new website! Please note that this is not a drop in center, students must register for their specific days of attendance and must attend at least 3 days a week. VELA is a 21st Century grant-funded program to provide students with additional learning and enrichment opportunities.  Please note that space is limited and there is an application process that must be completed. 

I have attached the program information which includes the application that can be completed and send to the office by Thursday, November 2, 2020 or you can complete the application with THIS LINK.

If you have any other questions feel free to contact me at 413-362-1871.

Thank you
