Avon Grove Charter School is accepting registrations for its after school program AGREE (Avon Grove Recreational and Enrichment Experience) until Jan. 20.
Some of the new classes offered this session are baton lessons, Science Explorers and Young Rembrandts. Other classes include arts and crafts, ballet, jazz, fencing, basketball, Running Club, Brownies, Chess Club, Read, Make and Take and many more.
"We're not only focused in one area, we're bringing programs that are diverse," Community Services Coordinator Sandra Bucay said. "AGCS is collaborating with reputable organizations to provide after-school programming, aside from our own."
Classes will be held in eight-week sessions, and begin the week of Jan. 23. Spring sessions begin in April.
"Most importantly I think is keeping our children safe and out of trouble with after-school and fun activities," Bucay said.
She said she hopes to add 4H to the program, and she is looking for volunteers to be 4H leaders.
National Baton Champion Tammy Russell will teach beginners' level baton classes. For the more experienced students, Russell's sister, Holly, of the dance organization Russell Co., will give instruction. Russell Co., Young Rembrandts and Science Explores are the outside agencies participating in AGREE.
Cost for these classes is $60 dollars per session. The other sessions, held by AGCS, cost $40 per session, Bucay said. Students who need financial assistance may be eligible for reduced rates and monthly payments, according to Bucay.
