    These experiences help to broaden students' academic skills and knowledge as well as the social and emotional capacity to use their skills and knowledge competently and compassionately in life.

    Mentone Elementary, Franklin Elementary, Lugonia Elementary, Mission Elementary, and Victoria Elementary (Your child will participate at the school they attend.)

    *TK/K students may be eligible for the Boys & Girls Club in lieu of this opportunity if they attend AM or Earlybird TK/K, class. Additionally, PM or Latebird TK/K students may also have access to before-school opportunities through the Boys & Girls Club.

    **Students who are enrolled in ASES or YMCA will also have an opportunity to participate in our Exploration Experience; therefore, additional registration is unnecessary.
