activities in Session 1. We have both familiar and new faces to Afterschool!  Miss April and

Mrs. Parks will be returning for another fun filled year.  Miss April loves to teach the cooking enrichment at afterschool.  When she’s not at school, Mrs. Park loves to play with her pet bunny Lila.


Mr. McGrath is now a middle school math teacher at Miller’s Run, and we wish him the best!  We are pleased to give a warm welcome to our new Site Coordinator, Miss Carlie.  Miss Carlie is from Alaska and loves doing crafts.  She also speaks French!  We are happy to welcome new Group Leaders to our team as well: Miss Nicole and Miss Brittany.  Miss Nicole is from Massachusetts and loves playing sports.  She has played soccer in four different countries!  Miss Brittany is from Vermont and was a student at Burke Town School when she was your age.
