After School Pilot

As more and more schools extend their day beyond 3pm into after school, our principals have been asking for programs that support and enrich the academics of the school day, and we’re excited to announce that we’re piloting an extended day program at PS 46 this spring.

BtB author Tony Medina signs student books after leading the class in poetry and spoken word in our After School Program at PS 46.

Working in the after school hours allows us to do more sessions than are possible during the school day. This means we are going deeper into content subjects and can do more complex, multilayered projects. For our pilot, veteran BtB author Tony Medina will be leading a poetry and spoken word program with a mixed grade group of third to fifth graders. Be sure to check out their work at our gallery exhibit on June 17!
