The start of the new school year will bring a change to youth programming in Warm Springs.  The K-8 Academy  will be the new location for the Warm Springs Boys & Girls Club.  The Club will remain in their current location at the Youth Center for the first couple weeks of school, providing afterschool care as usual – allowing them time to transition to new space at the K8.  The Boys & Girls Club office will be in a classroom in the school’s outer building previously used to house 5th grade classrooms.

The Club will be coordinating with the 21st Century Learning Afterschool Program along with other community partners live the Culture & Heritage Program, Youth Wellness and OSU Extension to provide seamless programming for youth afterschool, on no school days, during school vacations, and over the summer.  You can learn more about signing up for the Club and the 21st Century learning program at the Back to School BBQ this afternoon from 4-6 at the Warm Spring K-8 Academy.
