Dear Parents and Guardians,

Happy March!  We hope you are all enjoying the small glimpses of sun and high temps that have been peeking though the last few weeks, we know we have!

 In clubs, students have been building, reading, creating and learning with our monthly clubs.  We are all geared up to have some fun with Greek to Me, Debate, Pirateology and Mosaics.  We are also gearing up for some amazing events.  On March 7th, 7-12 graders will be joining students from all over Allegany County for the 9th annual Youth Summit at Alfred University.  TAB members, Shawn Serra, Chelsea Broughton, Cameron Schmidt, Baily Kernan and Mikayla Ames have been hard at work all school year to plan this incredible event...keep your eyes peeled for pictures coming later this month. 

Please remember that the ACCORD office in the school is now located on room 123, near the new gym.  We also ask that this year, parents come to the doors by the new gym to pick up their children as we will also be providing program from our new office location.  We hope that this will make the evening pick up process smoother and more efficient for all.  Important dates to remember can be found here on our webpage and anyone can feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns. 


Also on our webpage, you and your child can get a sneak peek at our upcoming program plans for the month of January as well as pictures from our incredible activities of months past, upcoming events and some exciting news of what's coming to the families of children ages 3-5!  As always, if you have any questions or would like to enroll you child in the ACCORD Afterschool Program, please contact at anytime.  Our contact information is available below.
