After School at Addison
Posted on 10/08/2017

So he and his administrators put on their thinking caps.  Using Title 1 funds, Addison is holding its own after school program twice a week.  Students are fed a snack before hitting the books.  They receive tutoring for reading and math for about an hour. 

Right now, nearly 50 students are participating on a regular basis.  The school hopes to double enrollment by the holidays.  Transportation is provided and students can still participate in sports.
