SANDY — Students and community officials celebrated the launch of a new after-school program for disadvantaged children.
The program is jointly funded and overseen by Canyons School District, Salt Lake County, Sandy City and the Department of Workforce Services
The program will serve 125 students from Edgemont and Bell View elementary schools in Canyons District.
The new after-school program began earlier this month. Students from the two Sandy-area schools are provided a safe place to gather with friends, learn social skills, enjoy a nutritious snack, participate in physical education activities, spend time in computer labs, and receive tutoring and homework help from teachers. The program will operate every day school is in session.
The Boys and Girls Club is working with Canyons District to provide supervision of the children in the program, which is housed at Edgemont Elementary.
