FY 21- 2021Green Inspiration Academy Extended Day and Enrichment Programs

We know that kids learn when they are engaged when they are curious, active, and exploring. 

At Green, we have taken a big step forward in imagining an expanded learning strategy. Rebalancing academics with enrichment, we have spent over $700,000 in Federal relief funds to re-engage our young scholars and address their emotional needs and catch up on missed academic skills.   Here are the daily  programs our children are experiencing with help from teachers and community vendors:
