Helping you make afterschool better!
Caitlin's Book of the Month
Good books are timeless. This statement couldn’t be truer than in the case of Caitlin’s book of the month choice, The Velveteen Rabbit. Join us here to share this classic piece of literature.

Program Quality Initiative (PQI) Spotlight
This month the spotlight is on our friends at the YMCA. They consistently practice programming that helps promote a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.  To read more of what the YMCA is doing to make after school time a quality experience, click here!   

Safety First
This month we’re putting safety first by reminding you to practice tornado drills. Tornados are a common occurrence in Texas, especially during the Spring. Prepare effectively and please don’t forget to log them as you do!
