An after-school program is being held for local students in grades kindergarten through sixth grade at the Viera Regional Park Community Center.
According to Terry Parks, the recreation coordinator at the VRCC, students at Manatee Elementary, Viera Charter School and Pinecrest Academy that are enrolled in the program will receive transportation provided by the program to the VRCC. Parents will be responsible for picking up their children.
After students are picked up from their schools at 2:30 p.m., a homework and snack time begins at 2:45 p.m., according to Brevard County Parks and Recreation. From there, enrollees have an opportunity to have a snack and do their homework from 2:45 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Thereafter, enrollees will participate in an outdoor activity beginning at 4 p.m. before coming back inside for an activity at 5 p.m. prior to the program’s conclusion each day at 6 p.m.
Students from other schools are permitted to be enrolled in the program, but parents or guardians must provide for their students to be dropped off and picked up.
A maximum of 18 students are allowed in the program.
The cost to enroll a child for a week is $30. Those interested in enrolling their children should call the VRCC at 321-433-4891.
