After School Program

We are grateful to Dr. Zissios and the teaching staff at LCTA for supporting the PTA to provide an after school enrichment program for our families! We had another successful registration sign-up for this second session about to begin. Many of the classes are full and in a few cases we had to run a second class. Please expect your after school program confirmation notices on Monday next week.

Session 2 will begin on January 14th  - March 7th, 2019

For our K parents, new to the program, please familiarize yourself with the dismissal procedures.
