After-School Activities to Expand
From today's Metro section:
The Fairfax County school system will kick off an expansion of its middle school after-school programs today.
The joint effort of the system and the county government will offer more seventh- and eighth-grade after-school activities to boost academic achievement and keep students from gangs, drugs and alcohol.
Twelve of the county's 26 middle schools will offer activities five days a week instead of three. The formal launch is at 4 p.m. at Luther Jackson Middle School, 3020 Gallows Rd. in Falls Church.
