Are you interested in helping your child, entering first through sixth grades, maintain their academic level throughout summer? Energy Express is an Extension Service grant-funded program in partnership with AmeriCorps. It supports school success by focusing on reading, art, drama, and creative learning activities. College-age mentors, along with community volunteers and a certified teacher site coordinator, work with children in small groups. We make reading fun for children. We also serve two nutritious family-style meals each day. Please register as soon as possible, since openings are limited. You may call for a paper registration if needed.
